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.
