My life began in the early 2000's in the ancient Nigerian city of Awka, born to public servant parents. Not long after my birth, we relocated to Obudu, Cross River state where I started primary education in 2007 at Handmaids International Nursery and Primary School, Obudu. I had a nomadic secondary school experience across about three towns. Nearly three years spent at Pope John Paul II Seminary, Okpoma, Yala, before a brief one year stint at FCE staff Secondary school, Obudu and the twilight of my highschool life came were spent at Federal Science College Ogoja where I spent three years also, graduating in 2017.
I first wanted to be a doctor and applied to study medicine right after graduation, I was denied admission and made to spend one extra year at home. During the course of that forced one year vacation, steady reflections and self evaluation convinced me medicine wasn't my calling hence I reapplied in 2018 to study Engineering at the university of Nigeria Nsukka and my application was accepted this time. I'm currently a second year student of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering at the said university, and oh, my choice of course was influenced by its rarity. All my life I've always trodden the path less trodden by and it all added to my personal development.
Despite my core science orientation and unrivalled love for mathematics, I've also displayed great mastery in the arts and politics, testing the murky waters of school politics in the process. I have participated in numerous public speaking, debating and poetry competitions with a few honors to boast of. However, moving forward, I believe that the best way to fight underdevelopment and corruption in Africa is by taking responsibility and saying something and if you can, do something!!!
I've always used my WhatsApp platform to rant about defeatist and harmful mindsets harboured by the people of Nigeria and Africa as a whole, especially from our older generation and it was through that platform I miraculously encountered Centaville.
Centaville is a group of young people who believe that after saying something, you MUST do something, and they have made it a point of duty to actively strive in changing the society by their own hands. To them, the dream of a better Africa is not just by mere words of mouth but an unmeasurable desire to be a part of the actualization of this dream.
I am honored to be a part of Centaville and I look forward to serving you, my dear country Nigeria and all across Africa.
God Bless !!!!
