Oluwanishola said he asked for her phone and asked her to sit in his chair. When the cleaner did this, the CEO took some good photos of him.
After the shots, he told the cleaner that nothing is impossible in life. The boss said he hopes the photos don’t end up on social media but become motivation for him to pursue bigger dreams in life.
His message read in part:
“I hope this doesn’t just go to his social media updates, but rather an image that he would constantly look at, leading him to be a better person for years to come.”
