Hi, I'm Esther Kuforiji.
Hi Esther, what do you do?
Well, I’m a writer, an innovator and a philanthropist.
I meant your occupation, what do you do for work?
Oh, OK, I’m a product manager.
I help people and companies build successful software products.
So, basically, websites.
It includes websites, but also apps, machine learning models, augmented and virtual reality experiences and quite a bit more.
Nice. So what was all that stuff about being a writer and all the rest?
Well, ‘writer, innovator, philanthropist’ is the way I summarise what I do both from 9 to 5 and from 5 to 9.
Writer: I am Editor in Chief of Africana Daily. I also write fiction, mainly short stories but longer works.
Innovator: In addition to being a product manager I have a ton of side projects including an ideas and innovation company called Bringing Ideas to Life.
Philanthropist: I love helping people. I run an initiative called Sisters in Tech which aims to help black women access careers and opportunities in Tech.
Wow. That’s a lot. How do you get it all done?
It takes copious amounts of tea and prayer.
Haha. Well, where can I find out more about you?
