Since the start of the year, we have engaged our team members, who work tirelessly to support our work in seven African countries and beyond. Through the #FacesofPIN campaign, we highlight what they do for the organisation, their inspiration, and lessons, among others.
In this edition, we spoke to our Senior Officer, Programs, Ihueze Nwobilor, and this is what he had to say:
What do you do for the organisation?
I lead our organisation’s digital inclusion programs while working on digital rights and policy advocacy.
What is your inspiration, or what inspires you in life?
I am inspired by seeing my actions positively impact the lives of others.
What do you love about your job?
I love that my job allows me to bring positive change to the lives of those who otherwise might not have achieved those changes on their own. It gives me a chance to contribute my quota to making a difference in the world in the area of digital inclusion and having an internet that works for everyone, no matter what part of the world they live in.
What do you love about PIN?
I love the enabling and challenging environment that it provides its staff. This has helped many of us experience exponential growth in our careers at PIN. I love the warmth here and many of her employee-welfare-focused policies.
What are some of the lessons you have learned over the years? (This could be regarding work or life.)
I have learned that hard work pays off. PIN has taught me patience and perseverance. I have also learned to accommodate and get along with people from different backgrounds.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy watching movies and spending quality time with family in my spare time.
