About Me: December 31st 2004, I got a letter from The Graphic News (Kogi state news paper) paper to work as their correspondent in Kwara state; I was full with great enthusiasm that I will for once practice what I study in the professional institute of Journalism.

My name is Toyin Adurodija a season journalist with a passion for disseminating information across the globe. In 2008 I left The Graphic for National Life News paper located in Lagos as the Kwara state correspondent where I work to date.

As a reporter that has no power over what is published due to the interference of the power that be and that of the publisher; in November 2010 I decided to have a personal blog (www.gladys-nigeriannews-gladys.blogspot.com)where I can report no matter whose ox is gored and in May 2011 I launched my personal website (www.Dailypost-ng.com).

Born on the 29th of July 1979 to the family of late Mr. Phillip Adurodija and Mrs. Felicia Adurodija from Ogori in Ogori/Magongo Local Government Area of Kogi state, Nigeria and married to Mr. Olalekan Adebayo in February 2010.

I started my academic career in Ogori at the St Peters Anglican Primary School and proceed to Community Comprehensive High School Ogori for my secondary education and graduated in 1993, I proceeded to the Nigerian Institute of Journalism and graduated with a lower credit in 1999. In 2001 gained admission into the Kwara State polytechnic, Ilorin, Kwara state for a certificate course in Public Administration with lower credit.2004 I decided to further my education, I got admission in to the University of Ado-Ekiti to study English Education In 2009 I graduated with Second Class Lower Division Hons. Immediately I finished my degree I enrolled into the University of Ilorin for a certificate course in Computer Science.

The trainings I attended include: Journalism Development Programme in the Nigerian Education Sector, December 2010.Organized by DEVCOMS NETWORK and ESSPIN/ DEPARTMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT UK, PEACE JOURNALISM: Analyzing and Reporting Conflict, October 2009. Organized by JUSTICE, DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE COMMISSION, and Media Ethics, December 2009.Organized by Media Ethics Organization.

Social responsibility: In 2009 I contested for the post of the Treasurer of the Nigerian Association of Women Journalists Kwara State Chapter and won, the position I hold to date. I intend to contest the Chairmanship of the association come 2012.

Spiritual responsibility: As I grow professionally and academically I was mindful of my spiritual life, in 2007 I decided to take a year course on the School of Disciple a programme of the Redeemed Christian Church of God and came out with a flying colour and in 2009 from the same school of mission I proceed to the Bible College and graduated in 2010.

My special skills are news reporting, features writing, voice pop and interviews.

My Passions: report nigeria to the world

My Challenges: How to empower and influence women in Nigeria on how to over come oppression caused by the society

My Vision for the Future: to be a voice for the voiceless
