WORD LIFE/ CAREER
Denny although from a comfortable background, did not like to depend on her mum or siblings for support, she believed in paving her own way and earning her own wages. For this reason she ensured she had a job or business at hand at all times from a very young age.
She has always been excited about Brand & Communication management, hence her chosen career path. She has worked in numerous places at different levels from volunteering, internships to employment . Some of the places she had worked includes AIESEC Nigeria, Silver Bird Rhythm 93.7 Port Harcourt, NEPAD Rivers state, INEC Bayelsa State, Port Harcourt Water Corporation(PHWC), AfDB-World Bank-RVSG Funded Project under PHWC.
At each of this places where she had worked, most of her roles was geared towards contributing to the community, effective handling of job role, professionalism, developing her career path and passion of content creation, developmental works, citizens and stakeholders engagements, community relations and awareness programmes, new media content creation, web and social media management, brand development, promotions and campaign planning, publicity, PR, Research, Information collation & dissemination . All of which can be seen in her resume.

At PHWC she was responsible for most media content creation task, both analogue and digital content. Basically electronic newsletters, social media, website, graphics designs, photography, programmes, publications and many more content materials as was required for stakeholders engagement, public relations, awareness and campaigns initiatives.
She also had other part time jobs where she worked with Jenetics and as a creative director/ photographer with wraps and roses photography. She was also personal style coach and closet coordinator.
Denni-girl was a golden child born. She blessed her mum in many ways as ”Aunty” who had been a mother to many, could now be called a mum. Loved by her late mother a love also reciprocated. Just seeing her mother would bring smiles to her face. It was no hidden fact she had a small circle called family but she had unconditional love for them. in many ways she resembled her late mum in looks and in a kind heart.
Denny was wired in a socially unique way. This meaning, she was 100% an introvert but her social life was 2nd to none. It is no wonder I believe her friends will forever have a hole in their lives as she believed in friendship bond and made sure good friends became family. She never missed an opportunity to have a good time or celebrate the moment. Her life was definition of ”save and plan for tomorrow but live like there is no tomorrow”, in fact with ice cream and macaroons in front of her, I can hear her say ”YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE…..”
