We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story.

“Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together.
And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day.

The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees.



And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already.

Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School.

‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success.

‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer.

‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’



The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs.

Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City.

‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms.

‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “

  • Question: I find it really fucking gross that you would choose some shemale like Angielina Jolie to be your mascot. She's a heroin addicted freak and I lost all respect for you. - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    ikolwrites:

    **Angelina Jolie. Anyway, take a seat anon let me tell you about this beautiful goddess who is in fact 100% female.

    Angelina is known for her “dark past.” There has been rumors about her addiction and struggles but she recently came out that she was PROUD to leave that life behind her and to live a sober life with her husband-to-be and beautiful children.

    We were introduced to Angelina as a crazy chick who kissed her brother but we fail to realize that she broke barriers for female actresses that get thrown in the same type of roles. She’s played a diverse group of characters especially strong females who take no shit from anyone.

    Aside for her amazing acting career, Angelina Jolie is a humanitarian who has done so much around the world. And this isn’t just writing a check out to a charity. She goes out to third world countries risking her life to help those less unfortunate. 

    And she doesn’t just hop on a plane, stays there for a few days and leaves. She goes to their tribes, lives in their homes, experiences the terrible living conditions.  She listens to their stories and talks to them, she puts smiles on the face of struggling women and underprivileged children. 

    Since 2001, Jolie has been on field missions around the world and met with refugees and internally displaced persons in more than 20 countries, including Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Cambodia, Pakistan, Thailand, Ecuador, Kosovo, Kenya, Namibia, Sri Lanka, North Caucasus, Jordan, Egypt, New Delhi, Costa Rica, Chad, Syria, and Iraq, to name a few, and most recently visited earthquake victims in Haiti on her latest trip to help survivors of conflict and natural disaster." - SOURCE.

    Her and Brad Pitt have their own foundation which you can read all about in the link above. They also donate millions of dollars to other human-relief charities as well as organizations that protect natural resources and conserve wildlife. 

    "In 2001 Jolie was recognized and named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador at UNHCR headquarters in Geneva, to help educate the public not only about the plight of refugees, but also about the perseverance and courage they show in overcoming all odds to rebuild their lives.” 

    Other things Queen Jolie has done:

    She also said this:

    Did I mention she’s quitting acting after Cleopatra to be a full time humanitarian?

    So, yeah Angelina might have had her dark past but it’s obvious that she’s overcome that part in her life. She turned her life around and is one of the most beautiful and most inspiring women of all time. She’s an inspiration to me and I doubt you’ll ever be have the woman she is.

"There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”."

"Why don’t you put powder on your face?"
Silence.
“Those things on your face are scaring me”
“That’s such a nice thing to say!”
“I’m not being rude, I’m telling the truth”
“Let me go away since my ugly face is scaring you so much”

That was my morning, how about yours?

Coping strategy for when you are trapped in conversations with obnoxious people:

1. Pick a spot nearby, around eye level, preferably a small object. That is now the camera.
2. When they say something you just cannot stand, look directly into the camera like you’re on The Office
3. Repeat as often as needed
