I am a Nigerian born into a family of five females a male. This posed as a major challenge for my father who was strongly inclined to intrinsic male dominated principles and practices. All we females grew up having to prove to our dad that males are not more valuable than us. I think perhaps this is one of the major reasons I find myself to be very vocal and want to assert my own personhood at all times.
A little wonder that I got involved in social work during my one year national mandatory service for graduates under the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme. I was one of the volunteers trained on HIV prevention among youth in the rural communities we were posted to teach in. This particular experience marked off my journey into the world of providing social service.
After the programme I joined my mentor who owned a female led organization that started the break the silence on child sexual abuse and rape campaign in Nigeria. This birthed my work and passion in helping women to find their voice in the society, Presently I am a counselor and assist women access help and information.
