About Me

I am a writer and the author of two books. I founded an Informal Non-Governmental Organization; Smile-Africa Foundation that is committed to bringing educational and empowerment support to women and children in Africa. I hold a Bachelor and Masters of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Lagos, Nigeria. I am a recipient of the EAG scholarship on the "Fundamentals of Journalism" by the Whole Woman Network( Canada) and the Dawood Global Foundation of Pakistan. As the Creative director for Moncoeur Global Concept I undertake creative writing workshops for secondary school students every summer. Women and children form the core of society that informs my commitment to providing empowerment programs and literacy workshops till every child and woman is fully equipped.
