I care deeply about the plight of marginalized and vulnerable groups in our society. I left Nigeria in 2019 to pursue a graduate degree in international development and social change so I could equip myself with tools and techniques needed to bring about the kind of change I sought to see in the world. While in graduate school, I took classes in Nonprofit management, social justice, youth work, and in these classes, I learnt about the pivotal forces that are shaping the contemporary human experience, and the steps we could take to help vulnerable and marginalized individuals adapt in our always changing society/world.
Before joining Fenway CDC, I worked as a program coordinator at Heading Home Inc., where I helped individuals experiencing homelessness access different social services within the community, which enabled them to move from emergency shelter into permanent housing.
At Fenway CDC, I hope to leverage my experience working with vulnerable and marginalized individuals, and my knowledge of community resources to help residents maintain successful occupancy of their housing, improve and preserve their wellbeing, implement effective and inclusive outreach programs that engage residents, and connect them to vital services and programs to improve their economic mobility and help them live healthier.
In my free time, I enjoy listening to the news, watching history documentaries, playing video games, and most importantly, spending quality time with people who are close to me.
