We spoke to a few members of the BellaNaija team about how 2018 has been for them and what they expect from 2019 and we love the positivity!

Uche Pedro, Founder/CEO BellaNaija says:

Gratitude. I’m grateful for everything that happened in 2018 and everyone who made it happen. God bless you.

Aderonke, BellaNaija Features Ninja says:

This year has been great for us at BellaNaija. At the beginning of the year, we set out to go out of our comfort zone, to tackle issues head-on while maintaining a house style, but stepping out of the shadows. I’m delighted to see that we did over and beyond my expectations, but this really wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the entire BN team, but most especially Nkem and Niyi. And Orunor, even though he is a thorn in my flesh.

In 2019, it is my desire that we take up more space and increase our reach in terms of human rights, child and women advocacy and poverty alleviation. Using tech and social media, our team is going to continue to show the light that exists in this world.

Adesola, BellaNaija Showbiz/Events Editor says:

2018 has been a year of constantly pushing myself to be more than I can be – physically, emotionally, and mentally. It has been a year filled with so much and I’m really happy to still be here, being able to have a retrospective look on things. I’m really excited about 2019 because it’s going to be a year filled with amazing opportunities. I’m going to create those opportunities, and make the best of them. 2019 is my year of deliberate action. Let’s go get it!

Isoken, BellaNaija Style Editor-at-large says:

2018 was an immensely fulfilling year, and I enjoyed the challenges of working a 100% remotely with the team. 2019 is all about growth, audience development and really connecting with and tapping into our global BellaStylista community. Super stoked for fresh opportunities and partnerships in the New Year!

Mary, BellaNaija Style team member says:

Wow, 2018! I’m so excited about how far we’ve come! BellaNaija Style turned one this year and is already leading the industry. There have been so many wins in 2018 and many lessons learned – I’m grateful to have been front and centre during it all. From ground-breaking interviews to hosting panels sessions, speaking at a workshop and working with major brands – it’s been an amazing experience.

Sending out accolades to my team members for being total rockstars. Shout out to our BellaStylistas and BellaNaijarians that keep supporting us online and offline. 2019 is coming with so much more fun, fabulous, fashion content, so get ready!
