“My childhood wasn't hard, but it wasn't easy either,” Osiah explains. “My parents came from Africa to find opportunities, but instead, they found more hardships as they searched for jobs to makes ends meet to provide for their six children. I cherished these experiences the most because I learned the value of a dollar, how to save, respect, humility and appreciation for one’s life and culture.”

“I grew up in one of the worst areas in Detroit but my parent’s strict teachings kept my siblings and I grounded and prevented us from becoming products of our environment,” Osiah recalls.

“Growing up, I was left-handed, but my parents didn't like it because in Nigerian culture, the use of the left hand is a sign of disrespect,” Osiah recalls. “I was forced to be right-handed. That’s something people might be surprised to know about me.”

“I’m a simple guy, so I don't need to do anything extravagant to get the most out of a date,” says Osiah. “A perfect date for me would be dinner served on a high balcony while we connect through conversation and laughter. Afterward, we would take a walk through a beautiful setting, hold hands and then exchange genuine smiles and penetrating eye contact.” Swoon!
