Storyteller. Connecting people with social issues through creative media.

I am a communication and socio-behavioural professional whose expertise includes storytelling for change, community engagement, and socio-behavioural research.

I am exceptionally skilled in technical and creative writing, media relations and management, multi-sectoral collaborations, team dynamics and leadership.

I currently partner with Ogun State Primary Health Care Board, The Challenge Initiative Ogun State, Advocacy Working Group Ogun State, and Pathfinders International on adolescent and youth reproductive health.

I volunteer as a Life Planning Ambassador in Ogun State, in which capacity I manage strategic communication and collaborations to improve social conceptions of adolescent and youth health. I also advocate to and work with stakeholders to design, implement and monitor policies and processes that promote access to equitable care in public health facilities.

I am a member of the following teams and networks:

  • African Youth and Adolescents Network on Population and Development (AFRIYAN)

  • Media Action For Family Planning, Ogun State

  • Dev Comms Social Media Hub, Ogun State

  • Advocacy Working Group on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Ogun State Nigeria

  • Social Behavioural Change Communications Team on Reproductive Health, Ogun State

  • Ogun State Technical Working Committee on Adolescent Reproductive Health

Most recently, I contributed to development of the Ogun State Adolescent Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Policy document, 2019- 2024.

More frequently, I provide resources for sexual and reproductive health advocacy by blogging for the Ogun State Advocacy Working Group; archiving stories of people and events that illustrate gaps within the system.

I also train community mobilizers to engage young persons in reproductive health conversations, and liaise between the health system and young persons in need of care or with complaints
