Onyinye Udokporo is an entrepreneur, educator, dyslexia author, neurodiversity consultant, and content creator. Onyinye is deeply passionate about education and began her tuition business Enrich Learning, aged of 12.
In 2018, she won two scholarships to study at Tsinghua University in Beijing where she studied online education. Following that trip, Onyinye came back to London and independently created an online tutoring platform and tuition centre. This enabled Onyinye to take her business digital and online.
Having been a tutor for over 10 years, Onyinye wanted to delve deeper into the world of Education and completed a postgraduate degree at King’s College London in Education, Policy, and Society MA. She curated and researched the urban digital divide during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her research paper achieved a distinction and has heavily influenced her approach to the development of Enrich Learning.
Onyinye’s first book was published in September 2022. Dyslexia and Me: How to Survive And Thrive If You’re Neurodivergent discusses Onyinye’s experience of being diagnosed with Dyslexia at 11 years old. She is honest and vulnerable about the difficulties she faced throughout her teens including bullying and anxiety. Writing this book is especially important to Onyinye because more needs to be said about neurodivergence in black and ethnic minority communities in a bid to empower, inspire, and educate others. Onyinye is also aware of the lack of diversity in the world of neurodivergence and is keen to be a visible dyslexia advocate for everyone regardless of their colour, creed, and/or circumstance.
As well as having a voice on paper, Onyinye enjoys public speaking and has had the privilege of delivering historic speeches. In 2019 she was the inaugural guest speaker at the City of London Lord Mayor’s Election Ceremony. In June 2023, Onyinye delivered her first TEDx Talk entitled ‘How Neurodiversity Enables Phenomenal Entrepreneurs’. Onyinye has spoken internationally at companies including Google, BBC, Financial Times, Microsoft, and more. Onyinye speaks about neurodiversity, education, entrepreneurship, and social mobility.
