She wrote on Twitter:
"I resigned from my job yesterday, not an easy decision but I have been giving excuses on a job I do not love (Banking) and it’s even worse when you get in as a contract staff. I resumed in my 20s, leaving at 32 when there’s practically no more “entry level” job."
"My first degree was in Microbiology and have had the zeal for public health and so I started my MPH. This is me announcing to Twitter to help me with links to NGOs who do more of public health interventions."
When Legit.ng contacted her and sought to know what gave her the courage to resign, she said:
"My friends, they are my rock. And more so, my passion for public health cannot be achieved if I'm still stuck in the cubicle. I'm running a master's program in Public Health."
