I was very excited about going for Aké Art and Book Festival in Abeokuta this year. Every year before this, something always happened. The first time, I was in the hospital – malaria and typhoid. The second time, I was working – an attempt to keep myself busy during the holidays. This was my third try. Third time’s the charm. No?
I applied to volunteer, but I wasn’t selected which broke my heart. But, I have amazing friends and they made plans and I was ready for Aké by October. I couldn’t wait for November to arrive.
