Rita Okonoboh is a news editor with TheCable. She was previously a news editor with Sahara Reporters and a senior reporter for the Nigerian Tribune, among other roles. Okonoboh holds master’s and bachelor’s degrees in English, both from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria, and is currently a doctoral candidate at the university, focusing on the intersections between literature and medicine. She uses her love of reading, editing, and writing in both professional and personal contexts, evident in her large collection of literary texts, including favorites in the genres of social development and narrative horror. Believing in the possibility of making positive differences one day at a time, Okonoboh gets daily inspiration from the words of author Jojo Moyes: “You only get one life. It’s actually your duty to live it as fully as possible.”
