“I left Nigeria when I was 18, 2009.”
Not many people will look back after leaving the shores of Africa, especially leaving a country like Nigeria, where the economic situation is unstable. For many, finally finding the green pasture they desired is a reality they would rather live in than go back to their past where they had lesser opportunities.

“When I left, I vowed to never forget the people, problems and opportunities that I grew up wondering why no one was coming back to solve”.

I wanted to provide distinct, fitting, and purposeful aligning opportunities to talents that I grew up observing in close proximity, struggling to connect their honed skills to real-life opportunities with the potential to make the world a better place without leaving them desolate in the process.”
