In late 2012, she spent 3 months in Ethiopia, where she worked with Global Press Institute team and GirlHub/Nike Foundation local partners to train young girls 17-25years on how to use multimedia tools for development communication. She later replicated the experience in North-central Nigeria where she worked with English Department of GSSS to set up its first Press Club in 2013, as a member of the National Youth Service Corps [NYSC].
Her growing interest in media entrepreneurship has inspired her to launch RuralRepoters.com, covering under-reported news stories for development.
Her published books include, “In Days To Come” (2004), "Preserving My Saltiness" (2011) and "Half a Loaf & a Bakery" (2013).
In November 2010, Jennifer was awarded the LEAP Africa Nigerian Youth Leadership Award for her work as an outstanding Nigerian youth leader and her commitment to development. She is also a recipient of the 2013 Innovative Young Journalist Award by Journalists for Christ International Outreach and 2016 Foreign Press Association Award.
Jennifer hopes to keep reaching out to other youths through BeforeGrad www.beforegraduation.org, a pet project she is very passionate about.
Jennifer believes God created youth for a purpose and thus, must not be wasted in frivolities.
Favorite quote: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
