Hello! My name is Arinola Araba.  I am founder of bMoneywize, a fun loving, inventor, entrepreneur, and mum to three teenagers who enjoys working with young people. My previous education and experiences have involved the Health, Project Management, IT and Politics disciplines.

The idea to start this project hit me when my teenage daughter would bring her friends home to cook them ' Jollof rice' (an African delicacy), every day, when she came home from school but I was out of work...! Clearly I had to do something or two about teaching kids the VALUE of MONEY! We (Seun and our team) brought her and friends together to form a project group to develop a game concept that would answer the question above. What has followed the birth of the bMoneywize game ( also dubbed as Personal Finance Kit) has been a string of award nominations, BBC, ITV News, BEN TV interviews; and there's more to come...

Arinola and her daughter, Dammy were also featured in a BBC mental health documentary called "I blame my parents" that has received over 55,000 viewings on YouTube and more on the iplayer. 

The interview on ITV Lunch Time News credited bMoneywize -  board game,  as solution to teach kids money skills in an increasingly Cashless society. More:
