Ejiro fell in love with Polished North Dallas after attending the first luncheon. Being relatively new to Dallas, it was a great way for her to meet other women seeking to navigate career, faith, and life. Joining Polished made her heart happy and soon after, she got involved as a leader to be a welcoming light for others. She is now the Co-Director of Polished North Dallas and is honored to serve alongside so many amazing women.
She loves running, Boyz II Men, live music and festivals, deep conversations, diversity/culture, exploring new places, and spending quality time with loved ones, especially her wonderful husband, Folusho.
