Born on 3rd September,1990, origin of Anambra State, Nigeria in a family of four siblings.

I wake up everyday with new innovative ideas. I love to socialize with youths to know the diverse experiences of people. I always engage in discussions with both old and young to see the views and perception of people in relation to issues of life. I always listen to inspirational teachings and it has become my daily routine to use the social media in broadcasting motivational stories and quotes to inspire and encourage the youths.
