My Media Story: to become a leading woman in media, create a table for yourself and perfect your niche – Jackie Opara-Fatoye
When Jackie Opara-Fatoye was nominated for our LightRay 100 women in Leadership Project, we were thrilled! For us, that spoke a lot about how she has impacted her space. When you listen to her speak, you can tell how passionate a journalist, editor, journalism coach and media communications consultant she is. Her insights and tips for women in media are on target. While she bagged her first degree in Mass Communication from the Madonna University, Okija, Nigeria, she has gone on to study media management at Fray College, South Africa and numerous certificate courses in science journalism, data and solutions journalism. She is a fellow of the United States National Press Foundation, Fellow Association of British Science Writers Diversity Scholar, and the regional deputy editor for SciDev.Net, a science and development media organization in the United Kingdom.
