Olabisi’s drive for ending sexual violence prompted her to begin her journey as a trained volunteer who taught children and young teens age appropriate sex education at The Center for Sex Education and Family Life In Nigeria, an organization that generates family life solutions, responds to child abuse and assists people with sexuality challenges.

In 2013, Olabisi became part of the team of advocates who taught high school students Sex Education during Lagos Empowerment and Resource Network (LEARN), an Initiative of The First Lady of Lagos state in conjunction with the Center for Sex Education and Family Life. She continued in her journey of seeing a world free of sexual violence by joining The Center for Hope and Healing in 2018, where she completed a training to become a Certified Rape Crisis and Sexual Advocate Counselor. Forging ahead on this mission, she is presently the Web-Based Advocate and Administrative Coordinator at The Center for Hope and Healing.

Olabisi holds a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry from Madonna University Nigeria, and has previously worked at a hospital, chemical company and independent living homes. She loves to take long walks and listen to classical music by Handel Messiah and Mozart.
