About me

I was born/grew up in: I was born in Lagos, Nigeria. I grew up in Windsor, ON, CA and later, Iqaluit, Nunavut

I now live in: Iqaluit, Nunavut

I completed my training/education at: I studied Biochemistry (Microbiology and Immunology) at the University of Ottawa.

What I do at work

I work at the Qulliit Nunavut Status of Women Council. My work revolves around activities and events that will help create equal participation of women in society. We promote social, legal and economic changes to help achieve this goal. My day-to-day work involves planning and running events such as the International Women’s Day exhibition and the National Day of Hope in Action on Violence against Women and Girls event. Our council works with other organizations and institutions to conduct research and provide services to at-risk women, youth, and families.

I engage with the public to update them on key issues relating to women and families. This could be through in-person or online workshop and meetings. I also advise our Member of Parliament on key issues relating to the Status of women in Nunavut. Part of my job is to manage our website and social media accounts on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I troubleshoot information technology issues as they arise.

My career path is

I completed my undergraduate degree and I am planning to return to school to further my education. Over the years, I have had many full time and part time jobs. Each job has provided me with experiences and helped me develop my work skills.  I feel very fortunate to work in this organization. I am gaining experience in an environment that allows me to learn and grow. My parents, teachers, and community have had a great impact on the educational paths I have pursued thus far.

I am motivated by

I like the flexibility and dynamic nature of my job. I get the opportunity to learn a variety of things by interacting with other individuals and organizations. In addition, I am able to stay well-informed on subjects that are relevant to me personally.

How I affect people’s lives

The work I do has a direct impact on women in Nunavut. We advocate for women in terms of equality and opportunities in the workplace. We also work to help make sure women receive quality services when it comes to health care and justice, and violence prevention. The work of our council does helps close gaps in service.  

Outside of work I

I love to stay active by playing sports. Right now, I am participating in recreational volleyball. I also enjoy community theatre. I like a good Netflix session or book, or dinner and game nights with friends.

My advice to others

Networking can be more valuable than you might think at first. Make sure that you inform yourself as much as possible, using all resources available to you. Try to set out not just long-term goals for yourself, but also short term milestones. Always remember (especially when things get hard), that even if things don't work out exactly as you might plan them, it doesn't mean they won't work out for the better! Best of luck!
