I was born in Nigeria, and the Nigerian way to say my name is "Eh-Boon" and it means "gift". And I also have a longer name which is Ebunoluwa and that means "Gift of God".
I hope to be a lawyer years from now. I'm still trying to figure out what kind of lawyer at the moment but definitely somewhere in the office for sure. I've always grew up wanting to be a debater. Like I feel like I have the ability to win people over kind of sort of, ya know?
I'm really big on helping the homeless. Like for some reason whenever homelessness is brought up, I get really emotional. So when it comes to making my contribution to the world, I'm hoping to not only help the homeless but also helping those who are underprivileged.
When it comes to fears, I just fear that I might live my life not knowing what I truly want. Like you know, living for what society says is better for me or living for what my parents want from me and not truly being happy with who I am. Like don't get me wrong, my parents never said 'you need to be this or you need to be that'. But they do have their way of thinking and it's how I was raised to think. Now that I'm in my freshman year of college, I'm just now beginning to think differently. I don't know, I just feel like my mind has been wrapped around their way of thinking which makes it so hard to make my own decisions in life and find out who I truly am. Like I really find myself not doing a lot of things because I know my parents won't like it.
But I have to tell myself that I won't be living with my parents forever so eventually I'm going to have make my own decisions anyway, ya know?"- Ebun
