About Me: 

I am the founder of the organization known as The Plus woman and Child. It is an Organization that aims at empowering women to be at their best, improving the welfare of women and children, alleviating violence against women and children and protecting the abused women and children. What is Unique about the Organization is that it drives women and children to contribute to attaining and promoting their rights.

I believe that the knowledge of women's human rights is not enough, but that each individual woman must do something with her life, if she is blessed with the education and skills. We cannot sit down and beg for rights when we have our rights staring at us; waiting to be exercised.

I am a young female lawyer who is passionate about grooming and encouraging women to become the best they can be, no matter their age and class in the society.

My Passions: 
Women, Children, Law, and Creative Writing
My Challenges: 
Finding Team Members and Partners.
My Vision for the Future: 
Raising Africa's Future Leaders
My Areas of Expertise: 
Human rights and Legal Commercial Practise
My Languages: 
English, Ibibio, Efik
