Founder, Confident and Killing It

Tiwalola Ogunlesi, the founder of Confident and Killing It, is a self-love activist, confidence coach and an inspirational speaker. After struggling with low-self esteem throughout her teenage years, she’s now on a mission to transform the lives of women and girls all over the world. Tiwalola founded Confident and Killing It in 2017 as a response to the generation cycle of low self-esteem amongst women and girls. A Dove study shows that only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful and so Tiwa has made it her mission to champion a social movement that inspires women to love and believe in their whole self.

A positive and powerful voice in the midst of negativity, Tiwalola has been praised for her valuable insights and thoughtful content on topics such as becoming confident, overcoming fear and insecurities, dealing with imposter syndrome, mental health, wellbeing and entrepreneurship.

So far, she’s equipped over 2500 women in London, Lagos, New York, Kigali and Johannesburg at The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy For Girls with the tools and knowledge they need to be confident. She is known as a captivating speaker who understands how to infuse self-development with fun and inspiring stories that relate to millennial women.
