It’s International Women’s Month, and in celebration, we’re chatting with Arike Okunowo!
Arike is the head of Sales & Distribution, and she has been at Paga for over six years. She defines success as fulfilling your specific purpose. She would love to be a child again and have no worry in the world for a day. Wouldn’t we all? 😎
Enjoy this chat and do something nice for the women in your life!
- What are three words to describe Paga?
- Paga is fun, innovative, and visionary.
- What is your proudest moment at Paga?
- Each time we hit a major milestone in our growth trajectory, I feel a sense of fulfillment and reassurance that we are on the right path to Making Life Possible for billions of people in our country and the world.
- What have you gained from working at Paga?
- Making quick and informed decisions – learning on the fly. It’s better to make a decision and fail at it, learn quickly, and make amends instead of delaying or not making that decision at all.
- Are you messy or organized?
- I’m in between, which means I’m “organizedly messy”. 😜
- How do you define success?
- To me, success is about fulfilling a purpose. Everyone has a goal and purpose they have set for themselves. Once you have fulfilled yours, then you are a success in your right. It doesn’t matter if another person sets a higher goal.
- If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day?
- I would like to be a small child (5-10 yrs) again, to “chop” life without any care in the world and enjoy the attention that comes with it. 😁
