Walk the Talk: Ayobami Omomeji





We had a small chat with Ayobami Omomeji, the team lead of the GIVT Initiative. Hear his inspiring story this week on the Walk The Walk Interview series.



NELOC Media: Can we meet you?

Ayobami Omomeji: I'm Ayobami Omomeji.

A student. An entrepreneur. A child of God. A grand motivator that help to seek after discovering God's purpose and fulfillment for young folks and upcoming ones.

More to it.
I'm a philanthropist that sees a FUTURE in the lives of those that I help. I see them becoming better and they are also birthing generation.
I'm a Thespian also.

NELOC Media: Lovely info. You're a student of which school sir? And what type of job do you do?

Ayobami Omomeji: Alright.
I'm a student at Olabisi Onabanjo University, AGO-IWOYE, Ogun state.

Well, I'm a serial start-up entrepreneur.
I'm into meal (food, snacks and drinks) delivery. A massive outfit that will be the first to ever occur in Olabisi Onabanjo University, AGO-IWOYE, Ogun State.
The meal delivery is an aid to help students, Lecturers and non-teaching staffs get their food whenever they are hungry and feeling weak to move, they could pick up there mobile phone to order. We see that food is a necessity, in betwixt of this, we are helping to solve a problem. A problem that is providing happy solution to indigenes and students of AGO-IWOYE.
You could follow us on IG- @mealnminutes.

NELOC Media: Wow! That's innovative.
Quoting from your words, "The meal delivery is an aid to help students, lecturers and non-teaching staffs get their food whenever they are hungry and feeling weak to move, they could pick up there mobile phone to order."
That means your service is 24/7. How do you cope, being a student? Considering time, etc

Ayobami Omomeji: Well.

Not at all, it's not a 24/7 service we are providing. We work on students availability inside campus.

We work from 8:00am till 4:00pm because we are just starting, anyway.

We are so Strategic about this, very strategic.

Plus, even being a student, I must confess, it hasn't been easy at all. Our team is just 9 (so little), but, we actually work with each of the team member class timetable schedule. Fortunate for us, none of our classes or schedules are clashing. It can be so hectic, I mean direly hectic but, we do this because we have created a solution we don't want it to turn into a problem again, so together we stay with it and we are happy.

Happily, everyone is doing fine academically.

NELOC Media: That's good to know. What inspired you to establish the Global Impact Visionary Thinkers Initiative?

Ayobami Omomeji: Beautiful.

I've always had a natural sense to help and make sure someone is influenced positively through. I feel gladdened about that, anyway.

Not until I got to meet the Saviour and I was rebranded and shown a new light. Now, at this time, I knew what to do.

Then, I started self development. I wanted to know more, I read books, meditated and sought God face in prayer to whom and who I want to reach out too.

Then, I met a friend, Ifelolorun and she told me she wanted us to start something together (Spirit led anyway, cuss I saw it coming). I asked her, What is your personal conviction towards this? Her response was so likely, Infact, exactly like mine.

Then, because she brought the idea of starting something together, we decided that it should be named after her. In honor, we named it Amanda Visionary Thinkers (AVT). After somedays, when we prayed along that God should give us something. Surprisingly, the only thing we got at that moment was the change of name from AMANDA VISIONARY THINKERS to GLOBAL IMPACT VISIONARY THINKERS Initiatives. The name was confirmed by three of members of the Initiatives while praying, Infact, we got this (the change of name) at the same time and day.

Now, My germain inspiration was this:

While we can avoid evil, why don't we go for good. Many lives and destinies are been perpetrated with, there should be an avenue, a platform to correct this ills.

Another inspiration is this:

Let us die empty while we enjoy definite fullness. What do I mean? Many are meant to fulfil, but because of societal, parental, peer and denominational influence, young folks are detrimented to keeping silent to WHO THEY ARE MEANT TO BECOME.

So, Global Impact Visionary Thinker Initiatives helps to build a predetermined future into reality.

I hope you are fine with this?

NELOC Media: Very well. I'm inspired.

Apart from Global Impact Visionary Thinkers  Initiatives, which other organization are you in? And state the aims.

Ayobami Omomeji: Okay.
First, The RAISE 'Preneur Group.
Aim- Raising Acute and Inspired Student for Exploits Supernaturally.

Second, The New Man Movement
Aim- Raising new men and re-dedication to destinies.

Third, Project Rescue Mission
Aim- Helping the less privilege and making them happy always. Leaving them better than we've met them

Fifth, Next generation of Leader Academy

Sixth, ITWE(In touch with entertainment)

NELOC Media: In all these, you might have faced a challenge in one way or the other. How did you overcome them?

Ayobami Omomeji: Yes. Definitely, I have. But, I kept on. I didn't loose focus.

God is the background, I'm the instrument(even when it's not ringing well).

NELOC Media: God is the background. That's true. How did He help you? We read about the saints of old, how they overcame.
What's your story? Please share it with us.

Ayobami Omomeji: My story.

It isn't a sad one though but challenging. It's like a Manifold story.

I was born into the christian home where my parents are pastor and leader in the church.

I was raised properly, went to morally good schools (Oyemekun Grammar School) in Ondo state. I was properly warned against the cruelty of our society and how to run away, far, from them all.

But, through all of this. I had a mind. A focus. Determination that exceeds my parents, friends and everyone around me, ever than they imagine.

I envisaged things that were crazy, unexpected, things people will tell me that I CAN NEVER ACHIEVE. Imagine, I ever thought of earning 1million when I was 15years, during my SSS 3 days.

After my secondary school days, I had issues with my mum especially about my course of choice, she had problem with that. I want Theatre Arts but she wants me to study International relations or Political Science. I battled with this for 2years, during this 2years struggle, I determined, stayed on my ground, because I was shaken, battered, talked badly too and people around me discouraged me, thank God I'm studying Theatre Arts today.

During this time of struggle and prior, I discovered my purpose and thank God, ideas and how to strategise on it, has been God's directives.

I had a very heinous life that I wouldn't share for personal reasons. But, see, my parents are happy, everyone that didn't believe in me are challenging and encouraging and they say 'They'd love to see me at the TOP'

All along, I had total dependence and all round instruction from God and I heeded. The journey hasn't stopped, i'll continuing to heed till eternity because, there's always a price for ardent  obedience especially from God.

Let me say this again. My father was a driver of my purpose, I'd boldly say my father has been a contribution to what I am becoming in the process.

Well, i overcame because I was obedient and i'll continue to overcome because I'm an freak to been obedient.

My life is a testimony.
NELOC Media: Wow! Inspiring

Ayobami Omomeji: Thank you ma'am.

NELOC Media: With all of these, Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

Ayobami Omomeji: A successful and sorted Entrepreneur making waves rightly.

One of the youngest global impacters that folks/people will point after, that HE was a blessing.

A successful settled Family man (if probably)
NELOC Media: (smiles)

Ayobami Omomeji: Definitely ma'am.

NELOC Media: What would you love to say to inspire young people out there?

Ayobami Omomeji: My simple verdict about life is this:

We don't need to be told what to do because we know what is right. Perhaps, a lot choose the way of perdition because of a temporal-destructive fun.

There's a way that seemeth right to a man, the end thereof.... DESTRUCTION.

Young folks, there's something within you that cries out for an outburst, you've got no choice than to explore because that singular gift in you is a massive solution to the world's problem.

So, definitely, We all can be a solution if we identify a problem (gift).

There's no one better than you, you're the best and you're unique.

In conclusion, put your trust, total trust in God. He's not a failed God. He will surely do, cry out to him.

Stay connected!

NELOC Media: Thanks for your time sir.
