At glance, I am abnormal Nigerian, I think and act not like everybody but like a global citizen. I love pursueing/engaging in a project bigger than me, I love going MAD (Making A Difference). I joined/create/promote endeavours aim at creating equitable and just world for all. I fight corruption, women/girls and youth marginalisation and other forms of injustice, hence, I fear no evil.
Oops..! What again? I hate just seeing these in writing so i have over 3 years traction of actively doing them. And at leisure, I pen down poetry (spoken word/rap) based on encounters in those areas. Visually Impaired!
