Here at Transformation Academy we are excited to announce our October’s Transformation Academy Rising Star – Olajumoke Lawal!
Our goal with this initiative is to recognize and celebrate group membership who demonstrate the heart and service of a coach. Each monthly recipient of this recognition will be selected for a unique reason. Some will be seasoned coaches who serve as valuable mentors within the group. Others may be just starting their coach-training journey and exude a contagious attitude or passion. Others may be actively supporting other group members, whether by providing resources, answering common questions, or providing moral support. Regardless of each of our wonderful group members’ background or experience, we all benefit from the mutual support and varied perspectives offered within this diverse group!
The Rising Star initiative is a way to give a special THANK YOU to those who go above and beyond to share of themselves within this community.
This month we would like to recognize Olajumoke Lawal for her life of service and inspiring us all!

In one of her posts, Olajumoke shared that, “Sometimes you think you are wasting your time serving others but you are actually finding you. That’s one of the things that help my discovery journey. Active service to God and humanity.”
The mission-driven way Olajumoke lives her life, in service to her community and it’s youth, is a shining example of what it means to be a life coach!
