Ibinabo Abam: Child motivational speaker, word artiste


My name is Ibinabo Abam. I am seven years old. I am in year Two. I am a student, a child motivational speaker and a spoken word artiste.

How did you start what you do?
I started when I was three years old. At that time, my coach, Auntie Irene, selected me to recite the books of the Bible at the children’s programme in our church. She said I was always fast in learning things, even at that age.

What are the challenges you have encountered in the course of your activities?
I had to learn different languages and the meanings of things because of what I do. This is sometimes difficult.

So, how do you solve the challenges?
At first, it was difficult, but l learned to believe in myself, and that I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me. I also ask the Holy Spirit to help and guide me.

Who are your role models?
My role models are my parents, as well as people who make impact in the lives of children, like my coach.

How do you balance school life with what you do?
Most of my outings are during weekends. So, it doesn’t disturb my school activities. My rehearsals and coaching classes are also after school hours or during weekends.

From where do you get your inspiration?
My greatest inspiration is God. But I am also inspired by the things relating to parents and children.

Which places have you exhibited your talents?
I present in most programmes at my church, Guiding Light Assembly, Abuja. I have also presented programmes in many other places. Some of these include

My School Career day. Albino International Day in Abuja and wedding ceremonies in Lagos. I was also at a programme in Warri, Delta State, as well as many other places.

What is your advice to other kids out there?My advice to them is that they should be obedient. They should strive to be the best in school and in all that they do. They should also believe in themselves.

More about me
I model children’s clothes. I have also done adverts for various organisations and church programmes.
