Millennial, Enthusiastic, Career minded.



Welcome to Zinny Factor; so excited to have you here!

My name is Ezinne Allen-Obayagbona, but most folks are fond of calling me Zinny, and I’ve become comfortable with that. I studied law at the University and in 2014, I was called to the Nigerian bar. I went ahead to practice law for about a year and eventually dropped my law career.

I relocated to Canada and enrolled in a Human Resources Management ‘HRM’ program because I wanted to explore a multi-cultural environment. During this time, I was fortunate to work in a number of industries and in different work settings.

Presently, I live in Toronto, Canada and work in the IT industry. My job allows me to carry out several responsibilities which also includes aspects of human resources. Just in case you are a bit curious, you should know that while I was in the University, I delved into several things in a bid to discover what I was most passionate about.

But, it was even more difficult for me because I was good at almost everything I tried to do and had fun doing it as well. To be honest, I enjoyed studying law to some extent and severally worked as an intern in a few law firms in the country. I just always knew at the back of my mind that there was something amiss.

At some point during my law practice, a lot of events transpired which in turn opened my mind to pursue a different career path. I came to realize that what I wanted to do with my life was help manage people within organizations and its business in general, help workers find joy in what they do and discuss workplace issues that I’ve become aware of.

In March 2016, I started this platform with the help of my husband because I’ve always loved writing and it was the best way to share my opinions. This platform has grown to be much more than I ever imagined and I hope it inspires you in one way or another!
