It is said that looks could be deceiving and no one understands this better than Bukky Karibi-Whyte, CEO Bobby Taylor Company.
"I'm Not As Stuck-Up As People Think"
Do not judge a book by its cover, so says Bukky Karibi-Whyte...
The African American History graduate admitted that although many people perceive her as stuck up, she is infact an extremely nice person.
"I'm very grounded. I'm not as shakara-ish as I appear to be. I eat puff puff fried by a local woman and I eat Ghana high food. The women there know me by name."
On why people perceive her as b*tchy, Bukky says she's had to be twice as ballsy to operate in a male-dominated field.
"I'm perceived to be a bitch and that's fine. Some people say I speak too strong and I say my mind but I'm an extremely nice person and I've had to be strong because I'm female so you need to develop a tough skin and get more balls and be more gutsy to do the things that the guys are able to do. So if I come up too strong its because I have to be more gutsy to be able to compete with guys on the same level."
