She has been cooking for four days straight. She gets to rest for five minutes every hour, and a thirty-minute break every 6 hours in a medical van.


I love the way Nigerians have shown up to support her. The Guinness world record for the longest cooking marathon by an individual is currently 87 hours, 45 minutes.

Our girl is on her feet, killing it like a girl!

Just a few hours to go.

This is your sign to do that thing that seems near impossible.

The best things in your life are on the other side of your comfort zone


Do it scared.

Do it with doubt.

Just do it!.”
