She was nominated for Inspiring Fifty awards in 2018 and received the Owami Woman award as well as the Mandela of the Future award 2018.she just recently received a presidential award for the work she does. Her organisation is called the I. C. A. R E organisation.The two achievements that stands out as a highlight in the work that she does is the "Treat Her Like A Queen Campaign”- giving girls an opportunity to experience life out of the rural area by treating them to a ghalar dinner,gifts and pampering as well for their matric farewel. And the" Rare disease fundraising campain".
