Born in Cape Town, South Africa, Adila has a General Psychology and a Montessori Education background as well as being a certified yoga practitioner. In 2008 she started working with children in Lagos, Nigeria, where she discovered her passion for education and making a difference in people’s life. She was engaged in teaching at schools and found her predilection for storytelling time with young children. Adila volunteered at orphanages and charity fundraising events in the city. Working as a teacher with Helen O’ Grady Drama Academy Nigeria brought a new awakening in her with witnessing how effective and powerful “educating through drama” is.

Pursuing her dream of helping individuals to reach their full potential, she provides development through theatre arts courses, speech & communications courses, yoga classes and motivational talks.

The idea of Embrace Uniqueness originated from the belief that as individuals we are unique and embracing this notion can only lead us to become better beings. Everyone has the capacity and capability to do something phenomenal with their life. When one unlocks one’s imagination, possibilities open up. The path to discovery of the self and what makes us unique requires passion, confidence, self-esteem, serenity and a healthy body.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”
