Scholar Rahimat Ozohu Anakobe, a 300 level Student of Nutrition & Dietetics from Kaduna State Polytechnic, enlightened 60 students of Al-Hilal Islamic Model College on SEXTING, SEXUAL RISK BEHAVIOUR AND HEALTH: IMPLICATIONS FOR SUCCESS, in partial fulfilment of the requirements to graduate from ISERH Undergraduate Studies Class 5.

She started with defining  sexting as being derived from two words: sex and text. In clear term, Sexting is comprehensively defined as an act of sending, receiving or forwarding sexually explicit messages, photographs, images and videos of oneself to others through mobile or smart phones, computer and other digital devices. She discussed how sexting can lead one to various self destructions and crimes, such as masturbation & rape. This happens when one involved in sexting couldn't control him/herself. She took them through the risks associated with the act: lower self esteem, leads to depression, frustration and might even lead to suicide when it becomes worse. It's also a leading cause of humiliation and embarrassment if caught in the act or ones sexually explicit images or videos got published. Having done justice to sexting & it's risk, she proffered few solutions to helping them abstain from sexting which includes: disengagement of oneself from any sexting activities, dissociation from friends capable of luring one into it, etc.

Having successfully implemented this project, she has hereby fulfilled a part of the requirements expected of her to graduate and get inducted as an ISERH Associate Ambassador, and if all things being equal, she shall have unrestricted access to the resources available on the Ambassadors Portal - starting from Sunday 29th of November, 2020, immediately after their convocation and induction ceremony on the class platform.
