About me

Hi, my name is Uloma Ogba. I'm a travel addict who's been bouncing around the world quite a bit (Canada->Nigeria->United States->Canada->The Netherlands->Zambia->Rwanda). Now that I'm back living and working on the African continent, my goal is to travel to all 54 countries by 2024. I'm currently up to 18 countries.

When I'm not traveling you can catch me at my day job at the United Nations, reading, watching Netflix or hanging out with friends or alone. There's nothing I love more than a long, deep conversation that leaves me feeling rejuvenated, connected and in touch with my creative side.


I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences on Travel Light and I look forward to hearing from you.
