Ukange Patience is the Founder of “The Confident Woman,” an institution that focuses on helping young girls and ladies in Africa build confidence in their abilities, discover their potential, and utilize their strengths. The institution offers a virtual monthly training where they are taught self-esteem, self-discovery, and ways to live a more productive life.

Patience also runs her confectionary business “Deeblissful_Bakes” which provides cakes and pastries for different events. She volunteers for “Julebrama Women and Children Initiatives” as well, a nonprofit organization that invests in the welfare of vulnerable children and women in Nigeria.

She holds a Bachelor of Technology degree in Surveying and Geoinformatic from the Federal University of Technology Minna, Niger state, Nigeria, and several other professional certificates in Business Management, Leadership Development, and Girl Child Empowerment.

“As a visionary leader, I strive to see a network of balanced ladies confident in their abilities to become great change-makers.”
