Hi! My name is Omowunmi (Mo) and I am a writer and storyteller from Lagos, Nigeria, now residing in Greensboro, North Carolina. I have been writing since I could pick up a pencil and blogging for over sixteen years. I published my first book in 2012 and have not slowed down since. I am a writer by passion, but what I really do is tell a great story. Knowing how to weave a tale together has expanded my world in an amazing way. Stories are the tools I use to connect with those around me. Currently, I help women bring their stories to life by offering guidance to those with a story to tell, and partnering with them to pursue a life of purpose.

I came to the United States when I was ten years old and blazed my own trail academically, graduating high school at sixteen, college at twenty, and law school at twenty-three. Since then I have married, launched a private practice that was operational for over ten years, and discovered my love for telling compelling stories. I love helping others do the same, and impacting lives through mentoring.

I am a wife to my incredible husband (Keji), and a mom of two boys, and I love spending time with our large extended family or making memories with my husband.


My love for writing dates back to my earliest memories, I started reading at three and fell in love with words soon thereafter. Throughout high school and college, I penned books of poetry and prose. Since those humble beginnings, I have published three novels and countless numbers of short stories. In 2020, I published my first nonfiction book, “Memoirs of a Nigerian in Christ” (a collection of stories and lessons from my life). Life changed in 2012 when I began to tell stories of my experiences as a Nigerian immigrant pursuing the American dream. My novels weave together faith and culture as they tell the tales of Nigerian Americans making their own way in the land of milk and honey.

Why Mentoring?

I found my love for mentoring women in my early twenties. I was especially drawn to those of minority and immigrant descent. What started as a ministry assignment in 2008 blossomed into a calling. It is a joy to pour into the lives that are influenced by mine. I love to see women walking and thriving according to their God-given purpose and identity.

My mentoring program is catered to the individual. I have curriculums that are tailored to your (or your group’s) specific needs. My areas of knowledge include ‘whole-life’ mentoring where we evaluate all aspects of your journey, marriage mentoring for wives and engaged women, and discipleship that centers your faith journey.

Building Community

One of my core beliefs is that you should leave everyone better than you found them. I do that by mentoring and impacting women and modeling the importance of leaving a legacy that outlasts you. It is essential, to tell the truth in a way that moves humanity forward. Because doing so connects us, in meaningful ways, to others who are like-minded. We need each other. It is my joy to help women find their tribe and build connections based on shared values and compassion. I strive to do that in all of my work. Being a community builder is about pursuing my purpose in a way that aligns with my faith and my calling to those around me.

How I help

My desire is to make an impact on the lives of others, whether that be through story-telling, speaking/teaching, or mentorship. I help people understand that their story matters; I help them get comfortable sharing their journey and live in truth.

I believe that every person has a story to tell. Many never discover the power of sharing their journey. So I have made it my mission to help women to do just that. Our stories bind us together with the commonality that all image-bearers share. The stories we carry are tools to inspire one another to greatness. I am excited to see how we can bring your story to life, together!

My Services

I offer one-on-one mentoring for women and young adults. I also offer story-development and book-writing services for people of all ages and backgrounds.

I am available to be a guest speaker or facilitator for small groups, churches, women’s groups, and community organizations that desire to encourage their members on the subject of storytelling and transparency and the importance of both.
