My name is Victor Ayegba Mathew from Nigeria. I read Environmental Science during my undergraduate studies. Since I love teaching, my goal is to integrate environmental Science into the educational system and I am currently an Environmental Educator.
To me, this journey is such a beautiful journey of learning and impacting the lives of young minds across Nigeria. As a two times ambassador for climate change education in Nigeria, I have been involved in other projects such as Plant A Birthday Tree Campaign, Plastic Creativity, Storytelling Clubs , and many more in schools across Nigeria.
I got introduced to this community by a friend and I am so glad to connect to this wonderful community from Nigeria. It's my desire to learn and also contribute my quota to making this community great. I love teamwork and I am hopeful that this will become a reality.
