We had the good fortune of connecting with Allenbyba Teneilabe and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Allenbyba, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
I know to keep going because I haven’t achieved the goals I planned to reach. As for giving up, I don’t know how to give up.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I love being in a space where I am able to create content and product. Its my happy place and makes me feel alive! I’ve always been a creative person so being able to live through expression is a blessing because there was a time were I wasn’t able to do so for fear or being judged or considered “unserious” by my african parents lol. But now I don’t care and I enjoy what I do so much

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to my family and friends for supporting me through out my business journey. My mother, my brothers, my boyfriend and supportive friend have all been there from the day I started. I’m so blessed to have them in my life.
