Sharon Takim

Sharon Takim is a humanitarian with a passion for service and impact. She has served in different capacities including as an Ambassador and Team Lead in her institution for a DFID funded project – Purple, which was tasked with sensitization and encouragement of equal opportunity and equity. She also served as the President of the UNILAG chapter of GEMSTONE, an organization focused on building leaders with the right values.

Her first love is education, and she served as a mentor in the Edu-Aid programme, which placed her with a public primary school child, to help her on the journey to achieving her full potential, regardless of her present circumstances. This grew into her committing two years of her life to serve as a public primary school teacher in Kaduna state, under the auspices of the Teach for Nigeria organization. A graduate of Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Lagos, she is presently pursuing a diploma in education from Babcock University and a Masters Degree in International Affairs and Strategic Studies from the Nigerian Defence Academy. She enjoys reading, writing, travelling, and imagining.
