Chizoba wrote the book first and foremost because she wants to become a journalist in future and also a writer, so she wrote it because she wants to start putting it in practice so that she won’t lose sight of her dreams and career path and also, because the book passes a message of focus and determination, so she wrote it mainly to remind her that she must be focused and determined no matter the situation. Her environment inspired her to write the book.

What led to the writing of the book “Life”
On a faithful Sunday morning when she went to church, her pastor preached on talent using the Bible as a reference, how those who utilized their God’s given talent became fulfilled in life and how those that didn’t use it at all became frustrated.

After the message, she took a pen and a paper and got inspired and that was how “LIFE” started.

Her hobbies are writing, singing, but basically, because of her shy attitude, she opted for writing, since it is just her, her pen and her book. Her role models are Professor Wole Shoyinka, Chimamanda Adichie. She is currently a member of Young Scholars Club which aims at developing young minds and making them prepared to be good ambassadors of Nigeria.
