Biography & Early Life
Tito Ovia was born in America on 16th March 1994. She happens to be the third child out of five children from her parents. Tito is among the fortunate child, and you can say she was born with a “silver spoon in her mouth.”
She hails from Nigeria in Agbor, Delta but grew up in Lagos. But the fact remains, her family status didn’t stop her from being caring and passionate about people’s health care.
In her early days, her parents did fly them abroad for any medical checkups; healthcare was never overemphasized in her background, “what about the unfortunate ones?” that’s a concurrent question.
When Tito was 9years, she came across a by-accident. This made her dream of becoming a doctor come alive to save those victims. Unfortunately, after graduation from Cheltenham Ladies’ College, she didn’t get into medical school twice.
From a clear statement by Tito, her daddy did not support her becoming a doctor, but her dreams were beyond her father’s wish. Her mummy, being complete humanity, wasn’t a help to her dream either.
Tito applied again for medical school; she got in but didn’t get up to the grades required for a start, regardless of her hard work. It was a painful experience, but she didn’t give up.
She later got admitted into Manchester, where she studied Biomedical science. Her dreams of being a surgeon were still intact, making her apply for medical school in Manchester.
Her counselor back in the days called her on a particular day and advised her about public health. Tito always says she is very grateful for that day.
Tito made up her mind of becoming a public health practitioner instead of a surgeon. In Nigeria, Tito started her NYSC in Lagos State and served at Lagos State AIDS control agency (LSACA), technically her first job.
She worked as an assistant project manager in enabling AIDS is at its minimum across the state. Her primary work is data validation from one hospital to another, which became of very tedious experience. Nevertheless, her experience was marvelous.
Tito Ovia attended her secondary education in Cheltenham Ladies’ College, an independent school in England, United Kingdom.
She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical science from the University of Manchester. Tito Ovia made 3rd class honors, and this is to say no one cares about your grade but your value.
Before co-founding helium health, Tito Ovia worked with the Lagos State AIDS control agency in Orbis in Mongolia.
Tito Ovia is a lover of health care, and she co-founded Helium health alongside Adegoke Olubusi and Dimeji Sofowora. The question remains, how was helium health founded?
Tito’s two Co-founders were originally into businesses; they happened to attend King’s college together, making them long-time friends. She hasn’t met any of them before, but get to know themselves through Lagos life; it happens Tito’s friends studied law together with them.
One of them mentioned starting up a health tech through mutual conversation from one talk to another. To Tito, she had taught about it severally but hasn’t come up with any solution.
“Well, these two guys/ men needed a health person among them since it’s about health,” taught Tito Ovia. This was when she indicated an interest in joining them.
