I'm Vanessa and I'm a new Valuable contributor. My writing journey began as a teenager writing stories known as fanfictions on a online book site called Wattpad. Since then I've been writing on blogs and freelance magazine on topics of my interest.

Iโ€™m super excited to continue my writing journey on the Valuable Podcast.


About Me

I was born in London in the Borough of Hackney in a Nigerian household and I still live in London. I grew up as a girl with tons of energy and big dreams. ย Once I completed my A Levels, I started to think about where I wanted to be. ย I was working in customer service roles in M&S, London Zoo and VUE Cinema at the time when I started attending career events by myself and heard from leading experts doing well in different industries.

I joined an Investment Bank as a Intern at 18 years old. I went on to work in other roles within the finance industry whilst I worked on @cityconnectldn, a network I started to connect Next-Gen to the industry in London through social media and events. I hosted events and worked with leading organisations interested in Next-Gen. This is where my love for events and impact started. ย It is amazing to see the impact bringing people together brought.

I spoke on BBC Radio London and Times Radio in 2020 and this year, I hosted Bloomberg Next-Gen Connect 2022.

I currently work for a leading financial news publication and support initiatives pushing important agendas I advocate for as a volunteer. The plan is to learn more, enjoy the process and document it as I go.

I canโ€™t wait to see whatโ€™s next and Iโ€™d love to take you along the journey with me. Iโ€™ll be discussing collaboration, events, economy, careers, history and mental health in my upcoming articles.

If thereโ€™s anything you'd like me to write on specifically, feel free to leave a comment or reach out to me on my personal handle.
