Called to make a positive difference!

Learning to Unlearn to Learn!

"We need to unlearn the idea that our unique mission must consist of some achievement which all the world will see, and learn instead that as the stone does not always know what ripples it has caused in the pond whose surface it impacts, so neither we nor those who watch our life will always know what we have achieved by our life and by our mission. It may be that by the grace of God we helped bring about a profound change for the better in the lives of other souls around us, but it also may be that this takes place beyond our sight, or after we have gone on. And we may never know what we have accomplished, until we see Him face-to-face after this life is past". Bolle in What color is your Parachute?

College: The Nigerian Institute of Journalism (NIJ), Lagos.


Experience: I love Working with young people and have done a lot of community development work with different groups at different levels. I served as a Youth Intern at Journalist Against AIDS (JAAIDS) Nigeria www.nigeria-aids.org , Active Volunteer on Global Xchange- worked in THT (U.K) and PRTV (a media org in Jos). 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. Volunteered as the Communications director at One World Youth Project www.oneworldyouthproject.org during my Atlas Corps fellowship program in Washington D.C..

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
