OGECHI NWEKE
MENTOR

I come from a family of only girls, I am from South East Nigeria were having a male child is top priority. Growing up wasn't easy as we had to work extra hard to prove ourselves but I'm thankful for my supportive parents who encouraged us and showed us that with good education, we can achieve anything despite our gender. This encouraged me to be part of this cause. I want every girl child to have this opportunity to be educated and empowered and be the best they can be in the world.

 

I have a Masters Degree in Biochemistry and I am presently into Biotechnology Research. I train and work with students in secondary and tertiary institutions in science, technology and research. I intend to extend this wealth of knowledge and experience to young girls, especially those interested in science and STEM in general.
