As a young lady, her dream has always been to study law, but could not fulfil this dream due to the societal inequalities which was beyond her control whilst seeking a university education in Nigeria.

On getting to the UK, she went back into full time employment and worked in Social Housing Unit with the Westminster City Council and Lambeth Council where she gained over seven years wealth of experience. She moved on to Housing for Women (housing association) where she worked for Five years as an Estate Services Officer.
Her long term desire to fulfil her dream led her to give up full time job, deprived herself of so many comfort and balancing motherly role and responsibilities for her three lovely kids.
