November, 1993
Bio: 
My name is Deborah Oluwamayowa Gbadamosi, and I was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria. I am the oldest of two, which hints that I was not as expected or planned as the other one. My family means the world to me, we are all very close. My family is the main foundation in my life; I can depend on them during times of need or even when I just want to talk. Besides my family, my faith is really important to me. Moving from Nigeria to New York City was not as simple as I thought. I struggled with communicating because of the language barrier. Additionally, I had a hard time connecting with my peers which made it difficult to make friends. In school I was known as a “different person” because of the way I spoke. I found myself not being able to speak around my peers because I was afraid of being judged for my accent and heritage. I am yet to know who Deborah Oluwamayowa Gbadamosi is, but I am starting to get visions of what I will become. I am that little bit of hope that goes on even when the world knocks me down. Confidence does not come so easy for me, but building my confidence over these past few years has taught me to never give up and just take life one step at a time.
