Jane Okoji is a dedicated medical student, avid reader, and enthusiastic health and wellness advocate who loves to share fact-checked and science-backed health information any chance she gets.

Since her elementary school days, Jane has always had a knack for cooking up story plots and fleshing them out during recess. But that was all she ever did — create a scintillating plot, flesh out the novel, drop it in an archive, rinse, and repeat.


After earning the Best Graduating Student Award in her pre-degree course at the University of Port-Harcourt, Nigeria, she went on to pursue a degree in medicine, where her love for writing and sciences merged and blossomed into a newfound passion.

She began to enter writing competitions, summarize online health articles, and sign up for writing courses, where she would gain invaluable experience to write for notable brands and companies in the health, wellness, and beauty industry.

Currently in her third year of medical school, Jane has her heart set on specializing in pediatric cardiology and has already made a name for herself as a published author for digital health publications such as Organicha (https://organicha.com/author/jane-okoji/) and Everyday Health (https://www.everydayhealth.com/authors/jane-okoji/).


Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (M.B.B.S.), University of Port-Harcourt, Nigeria
