I found my true voice after my accident - a plane crash that took the lives of 107 of 109 passengers in Nigeria in 2005. I was one of the 2 survivors. It was a horrendous experience that I will cover more in the videos provided and in my book. Many of you may have already heard it while viewing America's Got Talent.

Throughout the difficult journey of burns recovery, I was sustained by my Christian faith, my family and my music. 

I resumed high school in 2009 and in 2015 I graduated First Class from University of St. Thomas, Houston, with a Bachelors in Economics. 

Becoming a finalist on America’s Got Talent 2017 was my truest dream realized, and on June 10th 2018, I released my debut single, ‘Don’t You Dare’ on all digital music platforms. 

I became a burn survivor advocate for multiple organizations, including the hospital I myself was treated at - Shriners Burns Hospitals for Children- now Shriners Children’s TX- Galveston, Texas. 

In 2019, I became a finalist on the premiere season of America’s Got Talent: The Champions through Simon Cowell’s golden buzzer

Since then, I have become an active ambassador for multiple organizations such as WEMovement, Be Strong Global and the United Nations Foundation #TOGETHERBAND project, advocating for various global causes such as youth empowerment, bullying prevention advocacy, and sustainable living. 

In 2022 I wrote my memoir ‘More Than My Scars’  and my self-titled debut album is currently streaming on all digital music platforms.

There was a moment in 2005 that I truly thought my life was going to end and needed help dealing with both my injuries and my survivor's guilt.

Now after being so honored I am very grateful for all the wonderful things that are happening for me now and always striving to live my purpose for being here. 

I hope to use my voice and my story to ignite hope all over the world within those that need it.

I don’t hide behind anything. I don’t hide how I am, how I look from the world. I want people to feel like they can be their genuine selves in any given situation because that’s the way that they’re supposed to be. That’s the way to be really happy in this world.
