Grateful Voices: Adetola

“Gratefulness is a way of honoring my African ancestors,” says Adetola, “The intimate knowing that generations have gone before you and lived in a way that gives you the ability to say, I am here, I can do it, I can make it because the way has been paved.” In this short film from our Grateful Voices series, she shares her story, encouraging viewers to “Live gratefully–do not be afraid, do your best, stand in your power and be proud of who you are.”
