I am Ebere Doris Ina Joyce Gomwalk (nee Ijere), the 5th child of 7 children of Emeritus Professor, Martin Ohaeri Ijere of Unuanunu Nsu Ehime Mbano, Imo State and Mrs. Muriel Udoka Ijere-Crot a Swiss National. I am a Nigerian and a Swiss national. Born on 18th March 1975 in Enugu, Eastern Nigeria and was educated at Federal Government College, Abuloma, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Haute Ecole Specialise Lausanne, Switzerland and Open University of England where I obtained a masters in Science. At these institutions, I studied Health and Social Welfare, Nursing, Tourism as well as Humanitarian Conflict and disaster (Harvard University). I hold a B.Sc and Masters Degrees.I have diverse social and community interests, through which I hold several executive positions such as: President, Ebere Ijere Foundation, President, ASIS – Swiss Association for Integration and Solidarity, Financial Secretary, Duuchifoods4U and Co-Director, Kbmusic.I have an extensive knowledge in project management and investments. I am fluent in spoken and written English, French and Igbo languages. My hobbies includes but not limited to – singing, promoting African apparels and textiles, baking, swimming and travelling among others. I am an active member of my church choir and I loves music, especially gospel and Nigerian music. I am married with three children who are active in music as well, each child playing a muscial instrument or two and belong to the Swiss consevatoire of music. Being part of kbmusic is for me, a dream come true where I can through my work as a co-director promote my passion for Nigerian music and culture, my heritage.Eby, as most of my friends call me always had a dream… a calling towards helping people someday. I never knew how I would do it or by what means. As a child I would always help those in need and care for people. My father then a Catholic said I would be a nun. For years he would tell his friends that I was the nun of the house. Being very close to him, I felt I would do something in life to care for people. Then came the idea when I was about 8 years old to be a doctor. As certain circumstances I went through made me to leave Nigeria to settle in Switzerland, I learnt the French language and studied nursing, this being close to being a doctor. I cared for the sick, the dying and the wounded for over 22 years. Then I asked myself, “what could I do form my people, for those in need especially children and orphans”? As a mother I know how children are dependent on their parents. Not having them makes life so difficult. If I could create a difference in the life of even one child then I know I have done a good job. I dream of a day where children can be nurtured and taken care of properly: a place safe for them to grow and become responsible adults later on.God brought the right people to me to work with: Family and childhood friends. We are working towards achieving our goals.My dad was such a great man who loved people and loved knowledge. He had a passion of acquiring and transmitting this knowledge to others. He wrote so many books and articles. I pray through this medium I can bring back to life his works and achievements. Daddy you taught me so much, above all was I should be good to whoever I meet and to be kind to others.We seek to be the hand that gives, the hand that tends towards the helpless, lonely, sad, hurting, needy, distressed and sick. Extending the love and healing power of love, as God directed us to: to love Him and love others as we love ourselves.
