Your Personal Development Best Friend

My name is Oritseweyinmi Erikowa-Orighoye, also known as Dr Weyoms.

I am a Paediatrician with interests in environmental and public health. I am also an early career researcher in public health focused on nutrition and physical activity among children in Nigeria.

I am very passionate about gender, leadership, career development, and inclusivity.

Currently, I am the director of health programs in a non-governmental organisation called Coastal and Marine Areas Development Initiative. I also co-run two projects called The Community Girl Project and Action GX. They are platforms to mentor young people and promote environmental education and awareness respectively.

I love speaking on inclusive education, diversity and opportunities for growth and development.

Talking to young people and finding ways to help them develop themselves professionally and personally through their education, environment and more importantly spiritual life gives me joy.

Furthermore, I enjoy planning and organising sustainable development projects in health, education, and environment.

I am from Warri, Nigeria, and I enjoy using both Pidgin English and English language to educate people on things that relate to children’s health, young people’s lives, and women.
