Currently the Founder of STEMi Makers Africa and Strategy Lead of Calal Global. The Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Innovation Makers of Africa is a not-for-profit Organization that focuses on preparing young Africans with the right resource tools and professional development to embrace STEM pathways.
I chose this work because STEM Education plays a global role in Africa’s competitiveness and producing innovative economic leadership. I am passionate about the future economic growth and prosperity of Africa as it depends on an aligned education system that supports developmental efforts and empowers students to become innovators and nation builders.
Sometimes, we see cultural limitations playing a role in STEM Pathways. I advocate for inclusion in STEM and would love women to be involved in the transformative growth of an economy. I am thankful to see this happen and women delving into STEM fields.
I basically did not have a background (academic/professional) in STEM, although I loved creativity and innovation. With STEM and Technology precisely, I have been able to connect with an inner passion and that passion is to give fellow Africans the right resources and advantage to meet world-class standard in STEM. To me, this is fulfillment and a purpose driven life.
I look forward to building strong foundations for STEM literacy, preparing the STEM workforce for the future and increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM. This can also be effective with the assistance of local communities, academia and fellow advocates in the STEM field.
Science, as a strong contributor to innovation and prosperity; cannot afford to lose any talented individual. Emphasizing STEM across Africa is imperative in today’s world. I will kindly advise young aspiring Africans in STEM to embrace STEM opportunities, scholarship, network and reach out to women and men they admire in STEM related fields. You never know where this opportunities lead to.
Yes, I am working on a project in partnership with the United States of America Consulate General in Nigeria. This project is to train educators in STEM Integration and introduce them to Design thinking/Innovative skills that can stimulate learning in Classrooms.
