My name is Arinze and I am in my fourth year working at Olumawu College. I am from Anambra state and grew up in the southeast in a commercial town called Onitsha. I studied at University of Nigeria Nsukka, gaining a degree in Health and Physical Education. I returned to the University in 2014 to do my Masters in Public Health Education, which is awaiting completion. I relocated to Abuja for my Youth Service, after which I got a job in the school as a Physical Education teacher where i taught a wide range of children from varying backgrounds and ethnicities.
