We all know how demanding it is to be a banker. You have to get to work early and stay back late oftentimes. It is even more tasking for female bankers because if you are a mum, you have to juggle work and motherhood. However, our star of the week, Rita is one of those 'super mothers' who are able to juggle it all - career, family and looking fly (gorgeous).
"I have been a mother and a banker for 10 years now and it hasn't been easy I must confess. But, inspite of my very busy schedules, I create quality time for my kids. I'm at thier school for open days and in constant touch with thier teachers and most importantly, I take my annual vacation only when they are on holidays and we try to take a holiday together and spend quality time as a family," she said.
This is a beautiful and breathtaking photograph of an elegant woman with the smile of Mona Lisa. The black and white color of the image gives it that subtlety of tones which makes the image flawless.
The 5ft 7in tall beauty's hobbies are reading, writing, traveling and meeting people.
She speaks English and Yoruba language fluently.
"In the nearest future,I see myself as a marketing communications/public relations expert and consultant," she said.
