My name is Ariyo Taiwo. I grew up as an only son along side three sisters. My dad was hardly around growing up, so I grew up used to being around four women my mother inclusive. Accustomed to being around women, I learnt a lot of respect and understanding for the feminine gender even at a young age. Growing up, a lot of adults took likeness to me and invested in me seeing I had a lot of potential. In the long run I grew up very knowledgeable. I excelled at almost anything I laid my hands on, academics and even certain hobbies i picked up. I got a lot of compliments about my character and physical appearance and was voted most outstanding graduand and most likely to succeed in my class back in high school.
After high school, I decided to learn more about myself and more of what I was good at. I ventured into a lot of things some of which were successful and the others not so much but I got to realize I particularly enjoyed being a model. Being a model not just for fashion outfit but for good character, excellence and success. I have since then pursued this and tried to be the best I could be. In the pursuit, I dived into pageantry. This seemed like a good platform to explore my passion for being a model. Since, I have won several titles both locally and internationally one of which is the title Mr University Africa 2017. I have worked really hard at being the best I can be and have tried to achieve as much as I can. I am still aiming greater heights and striving to convert the best opportunities. Achieving this would define success for me.
