She was born Mildred Isioma Chijide to Michael and Patricia Chijide as the fifth of six children. Her mother was a teacher and my father a banker and they are both still alive and well and live here in Lagos so my kids have very involved and active grandparents.
My parents were very particular about getting the best quality of education so my nursery and primary education was at Corona School Apapa. Then on to Command Secondary School Ipaja Lagos for my secondary education. I moved on to Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife and University of Lagos (Unilag) for my first degree in English Arts and my second in International Law and Diplomacy (MILD) respectively. Career wise, I started out in the media working in television. I also worked a bit in customer service till I eventually settled into full time ministry with my husband after marriage.
