I used to Steal my Dad's Airtime so I could stay Online- Ebuka Akara, Digital Media Influencer



INTRODUCTION
My name is Ebuka Akara. I'm from Ndoki in Oyigbo Local government of Rivers State. I'm a graduate of Educational Management from University of Port Harcourt. I am a Digital Media Influencer. My brand name is Ebuka Akara. 
HOW IT STARTED
Well, few years ago I started building my account with a lot of followers. My motive was actually to find a girlfriend. A friend of mine advised me to make the best of it and monetize adverts on my page.





HOW LONG NOW
Five years and counting....
FUNDING
I used to steal my dad's airtime so I could stay online. Then I started getting paid with recharge cards from clients as a 'thank you'. That was around 2012. By 2013, I was making some real profit. 
OTHER THINGS YOU DO
I eat food, watch movies and play video games. *laughs* I'm actually waiting for Youth service.
YOUR FEAR AND HOW YOU OVERCOME IT
My twitter was stolen once. One of my bosses. A good Samaritan was able to get it back for me. Honestly, I couldn't sleep at night.

 YOUR INTERESTS?
God. Family. Food. Movies. Video Games.

DEFINE SUCCESS
One's ability to get up and overcome all despite the challenges.
FAILURES AND WHAT YOU LEARNT FROM THEM
Well, I've failed to deliver some jobs in the past. I usually look back at my deficiencies and correct them to avoid those mistakes again.
