There is an aura surrounding Nini that shines through in all her work - from visual storytelling to software engineering. Nini has always been interested in human experiences, and how they form our perceptions. Through studying and working in a variety of fields from design and technology to fashion, her pursuit has been in search of understanding the human mind and creating experiences that allow individuals harmoniously connect with themselves, with others and with the world around them. She aims to make a statement with her work - that beauty is everywhere - and in all spaces.

After garnering over 4 years of work experience at Microsoft, Nini is currently a Human Computer Interaction and Design MSc student and researcher at Université Paris-Sud (a Paris Sorbonne subsidiary), as well as a freelance designer and visual storyteller.

When she's not working, she spends her time traveling and dabbling in photography, videography, pottery, painting, sewing and writing. .

Born and raised in Kano, Nigeria, Nini is passionate about causes related to advancing technology in Africa, mental health awareness, gender equality and women empowerment.
