Woli Bukola Kafilah is a Nigerian-born scientist and writer who currently resides in Kwara State, Nigeria. She is the first and only girl child of her parents. She is an alumnus of Achievers’ University, Ondo State, Nigeria where she obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Medical laboratory science. For fun, when she is not reading, she plays tennis or volleyball.
As a child, Kafilah was a little bit obsessed with thinking up rhymes and poems. However, she only began putting them down after her first visit to the sea, which was a very captivating experience. Since then, she has written several poems and was the first prize winner of the Nigerian Platinum poetry contest. Kafilah insists she does not have a particular writing style, but instead, enjoys using different ways to express herself.
Kafilah’s works are inspired by the everyday life of people and circumstances around her. She also loves to write the fantasies in her head. She believes the world is her canvas, so, she must travel through the eyes of others to gain their perspective, understand it and relay it in her words.
