My name is Ngozi Ojiako, I am known by all as Giz. I have three teenage children.

My background is a mix of Childcare and Health and Social Care. I am passionate about both.

Having set up and run my own Childcare business from 2009 until 2017, I discovered that the youth lacked a voice within society. Their needs were not being completely met.

As Healthcare advocate. I have worked within this sector since 1998 alongside my childcare business.

Having gained a wealth of experience and worked up to management level. I recently embarked on a Bsc(Hons) in Health and Social Care Management at Anglia Ruskin University.

Child and Adult Care are my niche the desire to improve the lives of children within our society and empower them is my main goal.

I have also been instrumental in forming two associations within the UK, which help to fund youth back home in Nigeria and support their educational needs. I am the Secretary and Trustee of one association and the founding President of the other.

I am very pleased to be a part of this group. My involvement with Saffron Nigeria was the catalyst, and being part of this extension was a no brainer.

I hope to be able to engage and make positive changes in the lives of the youth, and finding ways of supporting and mentoring them towards a brighter future.

My hobbies are traveling, dancing, football, and meeting people.
