I am the producer and filmmaker of Black Motherhood through the Lens, an award winning documentary about four Black women's experiences in navigating the reproductive healthcare system amidst racial health disparities that I created as a full time medical student. My middle name, Enitan, means storyteller and I have been enthralled with storytelling from a young age.. Throughout my life, I have been used my passion for storytelling to raise awareness about health inequities and elevate the voices of minoritized communities in medicine and beyond. I have used film, photography, and writing as mediums to advance this mission. My daily mission is to make the field of medicine a safer and more equitable space for patients of all backgrounds.
