THEODORA KIO-LAWSON

About Me: 

My name is Theodora 'Furo Kio-Lawson; a citizen of Nigeria.

I am a trained lawyer, a practicing journalist, and a woman at heart. I am courageous and firm believer in the "Power of a woman".

Professional organisations I belong to include, the UK Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (Nigerian Branch), the Lawyers in the Media Forum (LIM) - an arm of the Nigerian Bar Association, Association of professional Negotiators & Mediators (APNM), the International Federation of Women lawyers (FIDA), and in the past, the Niger Delta Female Youth Initiative in Nigeria.

I hold the view that the woman was created with grace, ingenuity and resourcefulness, and if adequately inspired, will achieve her full potential. I believe in "THE iWOMAN".

My Passions: 
motivational speaking, human rights advocacy, writing and traveling
My Challenges: 
inability to bring adequate change to my immediate environment
My Vision for the Future: 
To help every woman I meet become a DREAM CATCHER
My Areas of Expertise: 
Law, Media and Human Rights Advocacy
My Languages: 
English, KALABARI
