Her hobbies include watching international cinema, chess, board games, reading and writing poetry, and now, blogging. She blogs at: (Re) brand Africa because she believes that “Until the Lion Learns to Write, Tales of the Hunt will Always Glorify the Hunter”.

Her topics of interest include socio-economic development, nation-branding, photography and African identity and representations.
