I also worked in Voluntary Service Overseas, VSO Nigeria as a Program Assistant on the Global Xchange program for about three months and then as a research consultant.

My passion for youth development inspired me to start up- Before Graduation www.beforegraduation.org, a program aimed towards connecting youth education with internship opportunities in Nigeria. I am dissatified with the current standard of education in Nigeria, and I hope young people will learn to explore internship opportunities that will give them hands-on experience to complement their classroom learning.
I hope to gain more experience to become more effective and efficient in serving.
If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed but skill will bring success. Ecc 10:10
