A crazy football fan (I won't mention her team even though we are on the same team 😁), academically gifted and a versatile woman. Meet our sparkling lady of the week. Her name is Adebimpe Daniells and this is her story.
She was born in a low income home in Lagos Island. She had her struggles but was very determined to be successful. She worked as hard as she could to raise funds and was able to relocate to Canada at a very young age.
She started life in Canada from scratch, no family, no friends. She pushed on and got scholarships to fund her education. It was one of the toughest times of her life but, the hard times made her push even more to achieve her dreams.
In the last ten years, she has volunteered and mentored with different organisations such as, Sickle Cell Awareness Group of Ontario as an Information and Communication Strategist; Ladies Learning Code Programmer and Rutgers Women in Business.
Adebimpe previously worked as an IT analyst with Prudential Financials and DTCC on Wall Street in 2014; she had the opportunity to be on the trading floor of New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
Today, Adebimpe is a senior software Developer with a Fortune 6 company in New Jersey. She graduated with a first class in Information Systems from Rutgers University, New Jersey while married with two kids.

She's a lifetime member of Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society (the oldest Honor society in the US) and Golden Key Honor Society. She received an IT leadership award from New Jersey Society for Information Management (NJSIM) in 2015.
Adebimpe works with UnitedHealth Group were she leverages Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to transform the Healthcare industry in order to deliver better health outcomes through innovative software and predictive insights.
Adebimpe is working towards becoming a Data Scientist entrepreneur in Nigeria. She believes Nigeria needs to create another economic frontier with Big Data analytics as Data takes over from crude oil.
She is presently working with two wonderful ladies to create a Girls Mentoring Initiative in Nigeria. A program that will cultivate girls, and also develop their skills and potentials.
Her focus is on the low income class in the society, by facilitating resources and mentoring the brilliant minds in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M).
With all of these achievements, Adebimpe still creates time for fun and family. She is very playful and down to earth. Willing to help if and when she can. One cannot be around her and not laugh their heads off. She might appear to be a nerd but is as normal as normal can be.
This is Adebimpe Daniells and she Sparkles ✨
