Encourage Girls to Embrace Careers STEM With Me

What I'm Leading

Many young girls in Nigeria think coding and science subjects are "more for boys." They do not fully understand why they have to develop their coding skills or build strong foundation in science subjects. I struggled with learning Mathematics while growing up but I wish I know what I know now about its importance and value. My campaign seeks to address the growing lack of interest in science subjects among many young girls aged 7 to 18 in primary and secondary schools in Nigeria. This project will help students to challenge their existing notions, build their self confidence, develop their knowledge and improve their problem-solving skills.

Who I'm Impacting

2,200 primary and secondary school girls in 3 years

Bio

About Me

I am the Founder of InspireIT, a free global mentoring program for young girls and women interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Worried by the decline of women in STEM fields, I started InspireIT in 2014. The aim is to get more young girls and women involved in STEM. I believe that more women can get into STEM through mentoring.

I am an IT Consultant and Technology Writer. I graduated from Anglia Ruskin University, UK. I love mentoring and I have been a mentor since 2014.

I am passionate about encouraging more young women to get actively involved in STEM and helping people become self-reliant . Apart from my interest in technology, I love reading, writing, traveling,surfing the internet and helping to raise money for the less privileged.
