Officially, let me say, “Happy Friday.” I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. Last year into this year March 2012, I have turned down numerous interviews and speaking engagements. I was so swamped it made it impossible to be in the moment specific to interviews etc. However, I did grant one interview to I liked their focus and mission and it made sense to make the time, somehow.

The interview has since been published.

An excerpt follows: How do you define yourself?
Uduak Oduok, Esq.: Unique. One of “God’s limited editions” to borrow a description I heard someone say in the past. Simple yet complex. Very independent thinker. Confident. Very direct. Assertive. Loyal. Caring. Honest. Great friend. Great sister. Great daughter. What where the defining moments that led to your career choice(s)?
Uduak Oduok, Esq.: A book I read as a child involving the legal justice system in Nigeria. The book was in Yoruba, and the lead character was a little girl named Agbeke. I knew then that I wanted to be a lawyer. In addition, my perceived gender inequality and the suppression of women in Nigeria further fueled that burning desire to be a legal advocate, and give voice to the voiceless. I feel blessed to be doing what I am most passionate about.

Africanplanet: What are your almae matres? And what degrees did you earn?
Uduak Oduok, Esq.: San Jose State University located in San Jose, California. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communications and a minor in Philosophy. What is the difference between you and others in the same field?
Uduak Oduok, Esq.: I am Uduak Oduok.

I am not as swamped and do welcome your solicitations for interviews and speaking engagements. has the full interview.
