About Me: 

FOLAKEMI is someone that cannot but speak and act against injustice a way of life that has put her into logger heads with governments,organizations and people who should help instead of enslave.
I have discovered that the most endangered group of people of my society who always receives the rough end of all the tormentors' decisions and policies are women and children.
Whatever culture, sex, race and society must has bestowed on them to tag them as 'vulnerable', 'disadvantaged',' weak' or 'endangered' are issues I fight with pen,voice and people of likeminded mission .

This is more shocking for me because these are issues not only prevalent in Nigeria but also The Gambia ,Senegal and host of other countries I have been to at one time or the other.

I cannot keep quiet, nothing and nobody can stop me despite all the prejudice and persecutions even from fellow women .I have lost my jobs every now and then even in NGOS yet I won't keep quiet, I am undeterred.
I must but talk for those who lie somewhere who cannot speak for themselves for only the torture in their eyes,bodies and ravaged spirits are there tales.
