I am a writer from West Africa. My writing is mainly influenced by parables and stories about Africa in general.
What motivates me is being creative and using my imagination. My main hobbies are drawing and painting, reading and traveling. I live in London (United Kingdom). I have written short stories like:
- Kiki the stubborn bird,
- Pride goes before a fall
- A bad penny always turns up
- Kojo the apple head
- Don’t Judge a book by its cover.
- Moji the cruel cat
- Everyday for the thief one day for the owner.
Presently, I am still working on a book “Victims of Sexual Exploitation”

Helen Bamber is a psychotherapist who co-founded the Helen Bamber Foundation to help survivors of human rights violations.

Isabella Okoh’s empty bowl is another favourite: it’s about loss, really poignant. She uses colour forcefully in her work, and this shot is grey-blue. Sometimes it’s the absence in an image, and the pared down beauty of minimal words that move the most.
