ABOUT


ABOUT 
 A Slice Of Life is the meeting point for interaction among people who share their diverse experiences of life in a close-knit community. At different times, life’s experiences may be pleasant or otherwise, and whatever the situation may be, people take out a portion from the whole.  Sharing experiences help people pull through life and that is what I desire to achieve.
On this blog, I get involved with this social community discussing my love for the arts, culture, books, happenings in society and issues that shape relationships and family life.
You can advertise in different ways on my blog; either direct advert placement, promotions, PR articles or event coverage. Kindly contact me via e-mail on debby@onepageafrica.com

The curator
On this blog, I go by the pen name Debby ‘Baro.  Both names were coined from ‘Deborah and Obaro, actually from within my family and my real name is  Afoke  Hope Orivri. I write as a journalist for a local newspaper in Lagos, and work as curator of the blog, A Slice Of Life.  I was born, raised and educated in the lively city of Lagos. I have essentially lived all my life in Lagos, except for the short period of one year that I spent as a corper in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.
I hold a Master’s degree in Mass Communication from the University of Lagos. In the last 10years, I have worked in various capacities as a PR, Research and Media expert. I love to write and chat. Story-telling is a part of my fancy and I still enjoy listening to folktales whenever I have the opportunity. I love to cook local dishes and I love my food hot and spiced with pepper. For me, life is a journey best enjoyed in company of people who believe in you and give you a voice to express your inner self.  I am blessed with a wonderful family.
