I was born in Nigeria. I studied medical physiology at the University of Uyo, Nigeria where I was thoroughly grounded on the mechanisms of body cells, tissues and organs and their effect on health and pathology. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters in endocrine and reproductive physiology from the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Nigeria because I have always had a keen interest in sexual and reproductive health. Our entire existence, depends on reproduction and we must ensure we live very healthy reproductive lives. This to me, is global health!
To help correct the faux pas surrounding global health issues currently affecting communities around the world especially in Africa. And also to network, exchange ideas and share experiences with a team of talented multidisciplinary global health professionals. I believe together, we can affect lasting changes in diverse areas of global health.
I am a news writer at the network. I write and tell stories as a form of advocacy. Stories that are captivating and drive commitment to promote global health, from issues on SRHR, HIV, MNCH to Gender, environment and development. It is challenging yet very rewarding. I tweet a lot too and if you are as passionate as I am about global health issues, follow me on twitter.
