'Kego Onyido (Juno)

I'd love to refer to myself as a writer but I sincerely can't. I'm merely a collector of stories. I remember ditching school in Lagos, Nigeria, to sit with street hawkers under Ojuelegba bridge or take multiple bus rides just to hear, share and collect stories. People simply fascinate me. I hold multiple degrees and certificates, including a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the university of Lagos. I am a serial student and life is my university. Certifiably unemployable because I'm interested in too many unrelated things and so I run my own Wealth Management Practice. I currently live in Canada with my family. I still hold Chinua Achebe's Arrow of God responsible for my addiction to the written word. And, Oh yes, I still take those multiple bus rides!
