What a phenomenal experience to have shared my near-fatal Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) story of race-driven medical negligence on LIVE TV on Channel 4’s show, ‘Steph’s Packed Lunch’. It was even better that I got to tag team with the beautiful Dr Sharon (IG: @derm_chic) who has created an entire medical curriculum centered around this important area.
The episode (Fri 25/06/21; 12:30pm) is available to watch on demand via Channel 4’s website (I’d recommend watching from 16 mins in, to catch our interview segment). It will be up for 30 days from the date of airing.
I am so thankful to have been kept alive for such a time as this. God knew why SJS had to happen to me. He trusted me to be the loudest trumpet pushing for change in this area. From directly contributing to medical education via lectures, to sharing my story on multiple National media platforms and now LIVE TV!
In 2019, I said that this testimony was bigger than me.

Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!

Thank you for visiting my blog. With love, Kanayo x
