S2 EP3 - Failing and Starting Over From Scratch
Some people are lucky enough to get a handle of their life early - to figure out what they want to do and to begin that journey. Some are even luckier to never have to doubt their identity, to not lose everything and or ever have to start again. Debola Ajayi wasn't that lucky. At 22, he had his life figured out but five years later, he lost everything.  His apartment caught fire, he lost his ministry, friends and even family. He got to the point where he had to rebuild from rock bottom and rebuild entirely differently this time. On this episode of the Vulnerability Podcast, Debola shared with Peace his starting over story. What happened that he lost everything? How did he cope? How did he begin to get himself back? What lessons has he learned so far? How did he manage a major life crisis at 27?

Everyone has a story ...or two: Season 2 of the vulnerability podcast explores the dark, deep and vulnerable stories of  ‘upwardly mobile’ young Nigerians.
