My dream job is a combination of my variety of interests. I want to run an NGO that empowers young Nigerian girls to be best they can, Teach, influence educational policies in Nigeria and continue to develop natural hair and skin products. At the moment I'm in San Francisco working on the journey to my dream job(s). You never know where life will take you! :)

(2. Entrepreneurial female icon)  Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti  I’m Nigerian and this phenomenal woman is one of my heroes, Although she is more known for her activism and being the mother of Fela, it all started in the market place where she helped women entrepreneurs with their businesses. Her feminism lead to the creation of The Abeokuta women’s union (AWU) a movement that aided Kuti to promote women’s rights to education, employment and to political participation.  #modcloth #makeitwork

(17. Three general pins relating to your dream job)  It is important to keep inspiration around.  Dr Amina Mama is one of my biggest inspirations, An African feminist writer who is currently the Director of Women and Gender studies at UC Davis. I took a class under her and was blown away.

She has been on several united nation boards is and educator and is an all round super woman.  #modcloth #makeitwork
