I am a native of Ikot Osurua, Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State, Nigerian. I started my primary school education in 1966 at St. Francis Xavier Primary School Ikot Osurua. The journey through the primary education took me to various schools due to the interruption of the Nigerian civil war. Finally, I completed my primary education at Holy Child Primary School Ifuho, Ikot Ekpene. I began my secondary school education at Loreto Girls Juniorate, Eriam Afaha Obong Abak and completed at Cornelia Connelly College, Afaha Oku, Uyo.
In 1977, I became a Catholic nun of the Congregation of the Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus, a religious congregation that commits herself to the transformation of lives through prophetic witness of vowed life, community living, participatory leadership and apostolic ministry with a special option for the poor, women and children. In 1984, I was admitted into the then University of Cross River State (Unicross) Uyo for my undergraduate studies.
