MirandaNet Fellowship is not associated with any political grouping, but we support many of the aims of organisations such as Amnesty International and urge members to look at the AUUK site and see if they agree with these aims as well.

Personal Statement


Personal Statement

I am the Executive Director of the Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre (W.TEC). Prior to this, I was Project Manager of Youth Empowerment & Restoration Initiative, an organisation working to increase local content in the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry by raising awareness of Oil and Gas careers among students.

I worked for several years in the United States at an educational non-for-profit organisation on a number of projects, which explored the interplay between gender and technology and which sought to attract more girls and women to study and work in science and technology-related fields.

I have a Bachelors degree in Economics from Essex University, U.K. and a Masters degree in Analysis, Design and Management of Information Systems from the London School of Economics & Political Science. My professional interests are the applications of technology in improving lifelong learning and also to raise the economic and social conditions of people (especially women and children) in the developing world.

My publications include ‘Telling Our Own Stories: African Women Blogging for Social Change’ (Gender & Development Journal) and ‘Making the Most of On-line Learning: An Introduction to Learning on the Internet’ (Education Development Center).
