Hi, I'm Boma. My name means Blessing. I'm Ijaw and Igbo from Southern Nigeria. I have lived in Nigeria, Botswana, the United States, and Canada (since 2011). I graduated from the University of Victoria with an Economics degree. 

I currently work as the Coastal Research, Education, and Advocacy Network (CREAN). I'm also the founder of the Support Network for Indigenous Women and Women of Colour (SNIWWOC).  When I'm not working with either organization, I am managing my small local service business and volunteering with the Rotary Club of Victoria Harbourside as the Director of International Service.

I'm passionate about gender, reproductive justice, and entrepreneurship.
