Pretty faces and charming smiles often captivate people, but they forget there is more to them than meets the eyes.
Dr Esther Samson Ukaria (hc) is a Nigerian German, born and raised in Kano, Nigeria, a city renowned for its monuments, crafts, and cultural diversity.
I love New York cheesecake, good cuisine, and just exploring new cities and organizing creative events.
My reputation for professionalism, humour, brilliant mind, and commitment to helping others often stand out among those who know me.
My stubborn part can sometimes get the best of me, but I am a quick learner and quick to apologize for my mistakes.
I hold 1st Class Hons. International Relations & Strategic Studies from Igbinedion University (2019), and IHK-Commercial Administration from Robert-Schuman Berufs Kollege, Essen Germany (2015), Personal Development Certified Coach from the Empowerment Academy (2021) in the U.S.A.

Having started my career as a trainee at the Stanbic IBTC bank in Nigeria, I moved to Nordrhein-Westfalen in Germany. I have acquired skills from different international companies over the years. Through it, I have developed conceptual skills, empowered my clients and my community during difficult times, and developed feasible solutions for various problems.
Moreover, I have always been passionate about philanthropy and writing heart- warming stories about life struggles. I would have chosen this career if I had won a lottery in secondary school. Nonetheless, in 2015 this dream became a reality. The House of Mercy Network Foundation was born. Our feeding program has impacted over 8,000 lives in Kogi, Nigeria and over 100 in Tamil Nadu, India.
Also, we have implemented renovation and training projects there. In 2022, we will launch a new project to provide a mother and child sunshine package to pregnant mothers.
This project aims to reduce the high poverty rate among expectant mothers in that area.
Through my role as an ambassador at the European Business University in Luxembourg, students can study accredited impacted courses on a scholarship.
In recognition of these achievements, I was awarded an honorary degree in humanity from the Faith Fuller Seminary affiliated with the Evangel Christian University of America U.S.A on December 5th, 2021. In addition to writing seven books, I've graced many stages and shared my word of wisdom with others.
