Be Yourself
15 November 2020 | by bayodanielsSee all my reviews

This movie finished before a realized it was a short movie. It is a story about stereotypes, what you choose to believe and being yourself. Dolapo is a young and brilliant high school girl who is enthusiastic about working in Finance in the city. She is mentored by a black lady who already works in the city and believes there are certain appearances that will be accepted or welcomed in the city. She advises Dolapo about her hair and her name.

After an embarrassing occurrence at school, Dolapo made a decision to be herself....reverting back to her previous hairstyle and walking gallantly to the city for her interview.

It's a funny movie and I'll recommend it if you're looking for something quick to watch.
