My name is Bola Agunbiade and I am honest, reliable and polite individual. I love hard work and tenacity, combine that with a sense of humour and a friendly approach and you have me! With over 18 years of experience in acting, customer service, media, public relations, marketing and International education, it gives me great joy and satisfaction to assist students in achieving their dreams and ambitions in studying abroad!
I am the Chief Executive Officer of Avail International Consult Limited (AICL). AICL raises awareness of higher education among students in the national level. We inspire students and once incited, we provide them with required information to guide them with the entire admission and visa application process. We also utilize our international expatriate and students’ network to help aspirants in Nigeria for their career-related and academic problem solving, through collaborative discussion, and social networking.
We believe our country can be uplifted only through proper utilization of its intellectual and skilled manpower. We believe studying abroad not only opens opportunities to international career exposure, better education and state-of-the-art research, but also individual economic and intellectual advancement can work as a catalytic agent for overall improvement for a greater society.

Hobbies and Interests
I enjoy learning new things and keeping myself busy, picking up new hobbies along the way. I especially love anything to do with the Arts both visual or performing. I love to do creative things. Computer Art is something I would love to damble into.
I love to dance and sing.
Another thing I really love to do is travel. I enjoy visiting exotic places.
I love reading; novels, magazines, blogs, websites, plays, dramas, poetry, I love them all and more....lol! Reading is the best way to relax, and if you are a stressed out person, it can take your mind off many things...try it! I love sports too and sometimes watch an occassional football with my partner.
But I would rather watch basketball and swimming :)
I love to write! Poems, stories, novels even screenplay writing. Especially now with computers in the main stream I can make a web page for the world to see my thoughts...!
I also love photography, all kinds. I love taking photos of people and selfies :)
I am a christian, what else? lol. God has kept His promises to me, and blessed me in so many ways. He’s helped me to grow. I’m not what I ought to be – but I know that I’m not what I was. I know that there’s nobody else like him. Why would I not want to be a Christian? Where else would I go, either now for a relationship with the living God, or in eternity when I have to stand before God and have my life judged by him?
Thank you for your time :)
