OLUWADARA

I'm Dara Olayebi, a front-end website developer from Nigeria. I graduated from the University of Kent in July 2016 with a First Class degree in Multimedia Technology & Design.


After interning for a couple of months at a digital agency in Kent, Yoyo Design, I decided to further explore my interest in website development and started freelancing in February 2017.


Outside of my work, I am extremely passionate about education for the less privileged children and hope to be able to help them discover the kind of an impact they can make in the world. I hope to be able to use technology to achieve this by building a community centre in Nigeria in 2018 that is forward thinking with a focus on tech.
