Uzoamaka Anita Asiegbu has overcome living with polio to achieve her life's dreams. A disability advocate and communication strategist, she is also very passionate about books.
In an interview with Daily Trust, she said that her love for books provided a way of escape for when she was a little.
After getting a degree in English language and literature from Nnamdi Azikwe University, she got the idea to help people gather their thoughts into words.
To do that, she started a freelancing company called Write Hand Hub which helps people to produce content. She said polio affected her right limb as she had to rely on a crutch to walk.
Anita said that people’s stares used to make her very uncomfortable but right now, not so much. She added that sometimes, the stares are not consciously done.

On handling deadlines from her clients, she said she gives herself a tighter deadline than the one she gave them and shares her work stages with them.
