I am also a Marketing graduate, I am a co-founder of Esisimo Network Foundation NPC and a founder for Mobile Kiddies Book Club initiative for Esisimo Network Foundation NPC.

In 2019 we received 380 used and unused story books for children and young people as a donation from Child Friendly Leeds at Leeds City Council. Reading changed my life when I was about to give us in life, it took me one book I read to realized that life isn’t about feeling pity for yourself and being angry about the things that you can not control. I started Mobile Kiddies Book Club initiative with the hope to change lives for other children who are in the same situation as I was. Mobile Kiddies Book Club strives to provide access to information to alleviate poverty and change the mentality that as a black child you are being disadvantaged.
