A uniquely curious spirit with keen interest in people, cultures & food. Her inquisitive nature has drawn her to interesting places as close as the karaoke bar in her neighbourhood and as far out as Colombia, where she worked for a non-governmental organisation and learnt Spanish for a year.  A former banker with a BSc. in Politics and International Studies from the University of Warwick, England and an MSc. in Management from Imperial College London.
A writer who loves to speak and share is a founding member of Ignite; a movement for young Christians.

In her words "WFM 91.7 represents the ideal avenue for women to speak honestly and openly about the woman's plight. Through this platform and my unique gift of connecting with other women, I hope to continue fostering and empowering the often-suppressed female voice in Nigeria".
