In a series of tweets posted via his Twitter page on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, medical doctor and social media personality, Chinonso Egemba popularly referred to as Aproko Doctor shared his inspiring story with over half a million followers on how he built a globally-recognised disease prevention platform using behavioural modification.
The multi-talented media entrepreneur recounted how some of his colleagues who were doctors at the time he started, ridiculed the Aproko Doctor brand, attributing it to a waste of time. According to him, looking at the impact he has made, the brand endorsements and his success story, he makes bold to say that it pays to own your decisions, your choices and ultimately #DoYou.
In his words “You don’t need to know everything before you start, all I had was my mirror in my room, then imagining I was talking on TV. It was the TV Box idea. It wasn’t clear at first what I wanted to do, but I knew it was going to be huge.”
Taking his followers down memory lane on his journey, he recalls his lows, the discouraging moments when his efforts yielded nothing and his eventual resolve to stay consistent and hopeful while pursuing his dreams. For him, what mattered was the bigger picture and impact. He was determined to change lives and write a narrative for himself.
Through his Twitter thread, he encourages the youths especially to stay true to themselves, live an authentic life that is devoid of fear, competition or the need for approval.
