Meet Delight Olawale-Success Of The Tenacious Class

It’s that time again when we explore the personalities of our amazing IFUMSAites. This week, we get to meet Delight Olawale-Success of the Tenacious class. She is the CEO of Deeda Designs, a clothing brand that merges unique creativity with modesty.

MediVoice: Hello Delight, or rather CEO Deeda😂. Can we meet you?

Delight: Hellooooo I’m Delight Olawale-Success, I won’t claim CEO sha😂. So let’s say I’m the Creative Director of Deeda Designs, a fashion brand. I’m from the tenacious constituency. I love music and the colour purple💜

MediVoice: You founded a brand with a unique vision, was there a propelling factor to your brand?

Delight: Yeah. In the world today, there’s nudity everywhereeee🫠and a lot of people think modesty isn’t beautiful. I then thought of creating a brand around modesty.

MediVoice: A fashion brand that embraces modesty, that’s cool!! How has your medical school journey been so far?

Delight: Well, if I was asked this question in part 2, I’ll probably be here ranting😂. Thankfully, I’m in part 3 and it’s looking “soft”. Y’all looking at me likeeee😂. Okay, it’s not too “soft” but definitely easier than part 2 and with a lot more stuff to read🙂.

MediVoice: Let me just chip in that her definition of soft is the synonym of shege😂. Are you involved in other activities aside from medical school or you’re the delayed gratification type?

Delight: Like I stated earlier, I have a fashion brand. I don’t believe in doing just medicine, that’s boring😂 but it’s definitely not easy to run a brand in this medical school.

MediVoice: I agree, it’s definitely true that medicine is a jealous lover. How do you manage medical school with an active business then?

Delight: Firstly, I have it at the back of my mind that my mates have more time than I do. So, any time I have to read, I read. Also, I mostly do my business activities during the day and use my midnight to read. So I can’t play too much when my mates are playing🫠. Also, God is my help, so I can’t fail😌

MediVoice: What keeps you pushing in life when you want to drop it all and give in?

Delight: Past goodness of God to me🥹. Friends too🫶

MediVoice: Wow… You must have the best kind of friends, mine just send me funny videos and try to bill me😂. Can you point out your most exciting and worst moment in medical school?

Delight: An “exciting” moment in college is probably when a class is cancelled (you’d probably think I’m not serious😂). A not so good moment in college was when we had back to back Incourse in part 2. We had BCH and then histo&embro the next day🥲. Damn, I read on the road that morning of histo&embro😂🤲🏾

MediVoice: I can remember lol… Those shege periods😂. Would you still pick medicine if you had a second chance

Delight: Yes, the stress and struggle is much. But it’s still a yes🙂.

MediVoice: The tenacity🙌. Reminds me of what they say, that medicine is a calling not just a career. What would you say is the greatest gift medical school provided you with?

Delight: Good friendsss🫶

MediVoice: Is there anyone you would like to give a shout out to?

Delight: My class rep, Blessing, Peter, Grace, Promise and my classmates🫶

MediVoice: If you were offered 10million dollars to quit medicine, would you take the offer?

Delight: Looks quite tempting considering the dollar to naira exchange rate😂, but, no thanks. I’d rather enjoy what I’m doing than the money

MediVoice: Some of us would take the money option though (just saying🌝). Which option would you choose to relax, read a book or see a movie?

Delight: Definitely a book, I love reading (non-school books sha😂). Movies get boring to me when it gets too long.

MedVoice: Any last words for our readers?

Delight: You are doing well, just keep on being intentional and the results you have in mind would become a reality✨️✨️

MediVoice: That touch my heart😫. Thank you so much for your time Creative Director Deeda, it was so nice having you!
