My Journey has been driven by my passion to see a better world for girls and women. I am a trained lawyer with over 14 years experience as a gender, media and communication consultant. I have worked on various projects around the subject of adolescent girls and women's empowerment; girl-child education, girls safety, women's political participation, gender-based violence and other development issues with focus on research and analysis, policy support, media and communication and other technical skills. I have consulted with various International Development Organizations including ActionAid International Nigeria, Girl Effect Nigeria, British Council, UN Women and a number of DFID, USAID and CIDA-funded projects. Research studies and project implementation has exposed me to working with a number of local NGOs working to improve the livelihood and life chances of women and girls.
My skills in digital media production also drives me to engage productions that tell girls stories. I am currently working on a production that tells girls stories of their pursuit for education against the threat of early marriage. Carolyn is currently the Chief Operations Officer at Marksmen Consult Limited and founder of Girls Voices, a platform for girls to share and connect on issues affecting them.
