About me:

Since 2008, I have been activating my leadership by participating and leading programs in the context of capacity building and social development. I was the national vice president of AIESEC in Nigeria in the term year of 2010-2011 and led the entity to achieve African Growth performance in the area of Global Community Development program which facilitated social internships program. In 2012 and 2013, I became the national vice president of AIESEC in Moldova leading the entity to achieve 100 internship realisation for the first time since the entity existence. I graduated my bachelors at the University of Lagos, Nigeria in 2011 and post graduate at University of Cambridge in UK, in 2016.
I co-founded TEKEDU (Tech Education) which aim to empower young people in Moldova to acquire 21st century digital and IT skills. TEKEDU led the co-creation of Girls Go IT, a program which is funded by UN Women, US Embassy and Embassy of Germany in Moldova and supported by eGovernment Center, IREX/Novateca in boosting Moldova’s entrepreneurship and innovation capacity by empowering women and girls to acquire digital and IT skills for economic empowerment. Since the program initiated in 2015, Girls Go IT has expanded to 7 regions in Moldova building the next generation of young women in ICT from rural communities.
