For Jay, there is time to work and time to play. And that is why when it comes to a debate; even the great debaters of our time would adore her after listening. Jay won twice the UTG Ambassadors Debate Championship, 2013 and 2014 respectively.

Hear her: “I feel so happy and full of pride knowing that I have won a prestigious young award here in my country. I feel proud because am encouraging young people  especially girls  to come forward and show what they can do.”

View of Life?

“The world should be a harbour for all, especially women and children. The world should be also free of female genital mutilation. I wish, hope and pray for a galaxy where women and children are free and not vulnerable.”

Jay’s philosophy?

“One thing to get there doesn’t get you there, knowing how to gets you there.” 


“Oh God, I dream everyday of having my own TV show called ‘Jainaba’s show for change.”

One person you would love to meet?

“Oprah Winfrey, I adore her. She inspires me a lot.”

Love life?

“That’s my private life, but since you asked, I am single.”
