She is a graduate of Communication and Language Arts from the University of Ibadan. When she is not working, she is binge-reading novels, espousing the merits of the MCU’s storytelling, awaiting the newest season of her favorite animation, and attempting to learn Korean by watching Kdramas and listening to Kpop. In her first chat with the team, she merely said,”I cannot wait to get cracking.”
