My name is Joyce, Ehinogie, Ebitimi, Ayomide, UyaiAbasi, Halima, Obiageliaku, Oamen, Daniels; but you can call me Joyce Daniels, JD for short, or ‘The Titanium’ for spunk.
I am a fireball of happy energy and an unapologetically optimistic Nigerian with a voice that boomerangs long after I have spoken. It is more than the words that I speak, there is authenticity in my being – I value it as much as I value purposeful living, fulfilment, happiness, service, growth, wealth, recognition, fun and clarity. Anything that does not embody these within my radius, I eliminate it.
I actively live out the concept of asking “not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” The more people I can get to think for themselves, along the lines as I do, the better our chances of shaping societies and nations that can do for us more than we could ask.
I chose to be a Master of Ceremonies and I landed my first paid event, Sunday, November 11, 2007. I have moderated over 1000+ events and counting, trained over 10,000 persons to speak and MC better. I authored two books (Mastery and Before You Speak, Read This) and counting, shared hundreds of written, audio and video content within the span of 14+ years. I became integral in turning a snoozy, non-existent industry into a choice career path for many. I founded Talkademy – Africa’s Premiere Training School for Master of Ceremonies.
Through my journey, I never doubted, never lost hope, never lost faith, not once, and I am still settling into the fun work because of an understanding of the self, purpose and a sharpening of the science and art of bouncebackability.
I will answer in the affirmation if you call me any of these; Social Engineering Practitioner, Events Hosts, Master of Ceremonies, Mindset, Courage and Confidence Coach, Global Speaker, Nation Builder. I am an associate at Women in Business, Management & Public Service (WIMBIZ), a mentor at Women in Successful Careers (WISCAR), a member Institute of Strategic Management of Nigeria, a member of Women in Energy, Oil and Gas.
It is the one thing my fit life will not get rid of – dodo, as called in western Nigeria, is typically “fried plantain” and I like my plantain ripe and sweet. I am going to be 80 years old, strong with a toned body so I am starting now. I love to exercise, I love the gym, throw in a few weights, and sign me up for any healthy meal plan. I eat clean, even though a moist chocolate cake can find its way to my mouth on special occasions. I enjoy dancing and singing so don’t be surprised if I instinctively break out into any of the art forms
– massages, spa treats, healthy meals, a getaway in nature, you name it! If you like or want something, say it! A number of people either lack the courage to admit what they want or the confidence and courage to insist, make plans, allow or accept what they want. Can we please fix that – because the world needs us whole and complete.
Oh, this page will be incomplete without the mention of my son!!! I am a proud mom to a fine gentleman but the journey to his birth was by no means easy. I got pregnant as a young, unmarried, undergraduate.
The knowledge that I was about to have a child out of wedlock tried to mess with my head until I started answering the voices in my head. I spoke back loud and definite – scratch that, I roared back. I was resolute that I would not be written off as most young women who had similar experiences and neither would my son grow up to be at anybody’s mercy. I did it! I am still doing it!!
I invite you into my world because your best life can start here and now
