We have to be the biggest promoters of our own stories.  Can’t  depend on CNN to promote inspiring black stories. Just wanted to share this story.

“Graduating from university is normally an occasion for a family get-together.
And this was certainly a big celebration for the Ogunsanya quadruplets who were handed their well-deserved degrees from the same university on the same day.

The 23-year-old quads, identical sisters and the oldest by four minutes, Toks and Temi Ogunsanya, and identical brothers, Tobi and Tolu, graduated from Warwick University with Master Degrees.



And there was not a jot of sibling rivalry as all four have landed jobs in the City already.

Toks graduated with anMEng in manufacturing and engineering and Temi, Tobi and Tolu all gained an MSC in management from Warwick Business School.

‘The fact we all chose to study at the University of Warwick was a natural decision,’ says Tobi, who thinks a bit of sibling rivalry is essential for success.

‘We are a close-knit family and were all attracted by the strength of the courses on offer.

‘We all gravitated to similar courses because we’ve always been interested in business and management and our father is a successful businessman in Nigeria.’



The quads, originally from Lagos, Nigeria, have been living in the UK since the age of seven when they began boarding schools. Since leaving university they have all landed top city jobs.

Toks is due to start working for RBS in London later this year, Temi, who interned at Santander over the summer, has been offered a permanent position with the bank, and Tolu is due to start working for one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms in the City.

‘Our parents are four times as proud of us,’ added Tobi, who is mulling over two offers from two major City firms.

‘They’ve supported us financially and have encouraged us all the way - without their help we wouldn’t be here today.’ “

I hope I never ever come off as flirtatious

So so not my intention. If I compliment your hair, outfit, blog, new Avi, ETC

It’s purely genuine. I hope I never make someone uncomfortable in that way. I like to build people up is all, it feels good.

I’m at a loss

for what to say. That’s why I’ve been away for a while. Periodically I’ll log on to see what’s going on but I rarely post these days.

I’m a writer without a story. Lost with no map.

I don’t know.

wearethe15percent:

Yesterday, we mentioned that We Are the 15% wouldn’t exist had it not been for last year’s Cheerios ad. A few days ago, Cheerios asked if we’d be willing to participate in their Family Breakfast Project. We’d planned a family trip that weekend, and we thought it might be fun to have a film crew tag along. We figured it would be a great way to speak widely about the 15%, and hopefully reach more families who’d want to participate.

We enjoyed collaborating on the video, and we feel that the real spirit of our family came across. You’ll notice we’re not glitzy; we don’t have separate make-up trailers – we’re just who we are: Michael, Alyson & Alexandra (with Grammy & Pappy). Plus, who doesn’t like breakfast sandwiches that look like owls?

The video is currently viewable with text from us on cheerios.com and on the Cheerios YouTube channel.

Thanks to the digital team at Cheerios, Zeus Jones, Rikshaw Films, and a quick shout-out to Deb Murphy, Michael’s sister, who happened to knit all of the hats we’re wearing.
