Dr Linda Iheme

I am a Dentist with focus on public health. While in dental school, I became very involved with community development work which involved providing free health care services to people in rural communities. 

I discovered that most of the persons in the communities are older adults and many of them depend only on charity organisations for health care. 

Then I said to myself “perhaps, if I can collect some data during these community-based programs, I can analyse the data, translate the findings and inform policy change that could bring about sustainable healthcare services to these communities”. 

It was then I realised that my dental background was more clinical oriented and has not prepared me for a research related career.

 

Setting Goals

My goal is to become a research expert so that apart from doing ground-breaking research, I can coach younger researchers to enhance their research capacity. I have also developed my online teaching capacity to enable me to teach at any part of the world through the internet.

Why Masters? In pursuit of my goal, I enrolled for Master of Science (MSc) in Public Health and health Systems, at University of waterloo. During my MSc, I prioritised equipping myself with various research methodologies. 

Hence, I took courses on statistics, epidemiology, health informatics and qualitative analysis. Eventually, I developed more interest for quantitative research. 

I went ahead to write a research paper with quantitative methods, presented it at a pan-Canadian research conference and won the research innovation award for that conference in 2018 summer. My thesis was focused on testing the feasibility and acceptability of a self-report assessment tool for community-dwelling older adults. I worked with 5 organisations in Ontario and Nova Scotia to implement this pilot project.

 

A PhD Researcher

With masters degree, you can do so many things but you can not lead a research team. I wanted no restriction in my research capacity. I love the idea of being a principal investigator and this is only possible if I have a PhD. So, I needed a PhD. 

Though I got PhD offers from University of Toronto and University of Waterloo, I chose Uwaterloo because of the friendly atmosphere and supervision support that graduate students at Uwaterloo enjoy. I didn’t find this level of support system elsewhere.

Uwaterloo offered me admission and full scholarship to study Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Aging, Health and Wellbeing by 2019. In particular, I am involved with international research that has championed the establishment of routine self-report assessments for older adults who reside in the community, to aid early detection of their health decline.

I currently work with older adults from Canada and Nigeria, and we are open to piloting this project in your country too. The data collected during this project will be analyzed and the findings will help inform policies that will benefit older adults in their localities. 

In addition, doing the PhD has given me the opportunity to perfect my quantitative research skills through advance courses on quantitative methodology and more practice of my data analysis skills

I have learnt a lot about research and this doctorate degree (PhD) will make me an official expert in aging research. It is worth it.

 

Research Interest

  • Self Report Health Assessment
  • Aging
  • Oral Health / Dental

 

Project Interests

  • Oral Health Awareness Campaign
  • Self Report Pilot Project Management

 

The Teaching Career as a Sessional Instructor

I believe in multiplying myself by passing what I already know to university level students. I knew I didnt want to be a professor-as-usual. I wanted to give my students an everlasting good learning experience. I wanted my teaching to be learners centered. Hence I embarked on learning how to teach.

First, I took the Fundamentals of University teaching certificate program from the prestigious University of Waterloo Centre for Teaching Excellence. This program was necessary as it groomed me as an early career instructor. 

During the program, I delivered several microteachings and received feedback from both instructors and fellow students.

Then, I went on to participate in the ISW (Instructional Skill Workshop) for University Instructors at University of Waterloo. For uninterupted three days, I spent time with 20 other early career instructors at University of waterloo. We gave feedback to others and recieve feedbacks on our teaching methods.

Since I was specializing in online teaching, I went ahead to take the intensive 6 weeks preceptor (Online Teaching) training from Centre for Extended Learning at University of Waterloo. This and other trainings have equipped me with the necessary skills to effective deliver courses online.

I regularly participate in trainings to update my teaching skills with current best practices.

 

An International Education Consultant @ Vantage Migration

When I saw how leaving my home country to study in Canada transformed me and quickened the realization of my career goals, I vowed to make the journey easier for other students that would like to follow this path. So, I started a company called Vantage Migration through which we coach both education agents and students on how prepare/submit exceptional application documents in order to gain admission and full scholarship in top Universities abroad.

 

 

Our trainings are most helpful to students who are looking to study post-graduate diploma courses, graduate certifcate programs, course based masters, research based masters, and PhD programs in abroad.

Jane Ezetah Biography

My name is Jane Amarachi Ezetah, I am popularly known as Jane Chris Ezetah on all my social media accounts.

I was born into Mr and Mrs A.S Ogbonna’s family in the late 80’s. The 4th child of  seven children, I was born and raised in Lagos. I had my primary education in Lagos while my secondary school education was at Federal Government College, Odogbolu, Ogun state.

After which I moved on to Imo state University where I had my tertiary education.

Growing up was fun for me considering the fact that I was born at the downside of Lagos where children played with no restrictions. The most interesting part of my growing up was seeing my parents move from one level to the other.

 

Meet Dr Linda Iheme, CEO of Vantage Migration; The Lady With A Golden Smile

 

My parents had 6 of us in a room apartment. How we manage that small space till date is what I still can’t figure out. We moved from that one room to two rooms, to a 2bedroom flat, until my dad built his own house in Lagos.

Life was not all that easy as my older siblings and I assisted my mom a lot by hawking some petty items from one street to the other.

For my career, I really wanted to study law (international law and jurisprudence) for the name but God had a perfect plan.

As a child I loved singing, writing and watching television. I remember always mimicking news casters and presenters in front of my mirror. I was very good at narrating movies from top to finish without mincing words.

If you haven’t seen a movie before and I narrate it to you, you will not need to see it again as it will feel like you watched the real thing.

Watching the Oprah Winfrey show on Silverbird television also made me start dreaming to become a radio and television presenter.

When admission to study law wasn’t coming forth after attempting JAMB 4 times, I switched to mass communication but eventually my name came out on the list to study Theatre Art. When the admission to study theatre Art’s came initially, I was not proud at all.

I felt so ashamed to tell people I was studying theatre arts because it wasn’t one of those big courses but today, I can boldly tell anyone about my course of study because I am gradually living my dreams.

 

Jane’s Encounter with Dr Linda Iheme

I heard about Vantage Migration through my eldest Brother in October. That Saturday afternoon, he sent me a screenshot of Dr Linda Iheme’s Facebook page and said GO CHECK HER OUT and follow all her social media handles.

I reluctantly came back and told him I have. He said she helps people gain admission and scholarship abroad. But my Brother said to me there is more to the vantage migration page and Dr Linda Iheme and that was how I began to follow up till date. I follow her actively on Facebook and Instagram mostly.
