Dr. Sheila Ochugboju was born to a community of strong women in Nigeria.

In this episode you will hear:
• How you must embrace any opportunity you are give fully!!
• How you should not fear your own power!
• How you do not have to be an expert to do high-level things!

From the ages 5-9 Sheila was raised by the community, while her parents were overseas studying and working. Sheila then joined her mother in England… HUGE culture shock!!
But, she did, and did it fabulously!
Sheila studied Biochemistry in London University, completed her Ph.D research at age 25 and went on to study Baculoviruses as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in Oxford University.

Sheila launched TEDx Nairobi, is a senior TED fellow, and is now a science communicator, and works for the United Nations Settlements Programme – UN-Habitat, coordinating the Global State Of Urban Youth Report (GSUYR).
