CJ Okafor

CJ is a creative to her core and storyteller at heart. She's passionate about both the analytical and creative sides of any project and combining them in ways that are surprising and meaningful, through copywriting, research, or anything else that comes her way.

A born-and-raised Minnesota girl, CJ earned her BA in Business, with an emphasis in Innovation and Entrepreneurship from Bethel University, St. Paul. And as a lifelong learner, she's currently pursuing her MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia College.

In her free time, CJ can be found reading on the train, wandering the Art Institute, or working on her next great writing project.
