About Uju Foundation
My name is Obianuju Irene Nwokedi – Enekwechi, I am from Nigeria where I was born and later came to the UK. I am an entrepreneur, influencer, founder and CEO at Yummilicious Cakes and Uju Foundation. I am a wife and mother to 3 year old Jesse, being a sickle cell person and looking after my son has been challenging but at the same time an amazing feeling to be a mother to him. I also run several online businesses in order to be able to have multiple streams of income since I am not able to get a job as a sickle cell patient. I am a sickle cell career and was diagnosed of the condition when I was one years of age when I came to the UK.
I created Uju Foundation to share my experiences and journey of how the condition has affected me as well as the challenges that I faced on a regular basis especially been a mother and a wife and at the same time managing the condition.
