I graduated with a B.A in mass communication from the University of Benin in Nigeria and afterward got a master’s degree in communication from the University of Central Missouri. While studying there, I worked as the social justice graduate assistant for the Office of Student Activities. This role prompted me to study more about diversity, inclusivity, and equity. To gain more knowledge in this area, I got a certification in diversity issues in higher education from the University of Central Missouri. 

Currently, I am interested in studying how culture impacts people's perception of gender and exploring how this perception changes (or doesn't change) when they step into a different society.
