Hello, my name is Hadiza Bagudu and I'm a Nigerian author, poet, and entrepreneur. I was born and raised in Yola, Adamawa State, the daughter of a physiotherapist and an engineer.
After attending school at Capital School Yola and Police Secondary School Minna, I earned a BSc. in International Studies from Ahmadu Bello University (A.B.U) Zaria. Following my university graduation, I completed my National Youth Service Corps (N.Y.S.C) in Calabar, Cross-Rivers state. I then went on to work in Diamond Bank Plc. and First Bank Plc., and achieved Microsoft Certified Professional status in 2009.
My writing career began in 2008 when I published my first two books: The Thin Line, a novel, and With Love, a collection of poems. My novel Fantah came out in 2014, and my most recent novel, Melody-Greatest Hits, was released in 2017. In addition to my writing, I also own a business called HADIZA BAGUDU ENTERPRISES, where I design websites and blogs, and create audio podcasts. I currently live in Abuja with my husband and children.
