The Rise Of Nigerian Women: Profiling Ihebinike Anita
The Rise Of Nigerian Women: Profiling Ihebinike Anita.
There is no gainsaying the fact that many Nigerian youths are gearing up to face challenges squarely in these hard times, no wonder the increased awareness to be self-sufficient and independent in order to survive. This need has seen innovations at a high; as promised, I will spotlight YOUTHS spearheading such unique developmental changes towards a better society.
"Knowledge is power"
Ihebinike Anita is one of such immense gift; excellently gifted in the art of beauty, Anita is endowed with such grace, brilliance and perky demeanor that can make any woman whine and nag in jealousy.
A stock from the creative field of Theatre Arts, Anita is on a blast to mould, school, educate, inform, teach, propel, entertain and benefit the society at large with her groundbreaking programme: Moment with Anita. This programme boasts of hundreds of youth participation on a daily basis. A programme aimed at discussing societal issues, taboos, relationships, civic and religious matters with a view to proffering solutions on how to solve them.
Her Facebook FanPage: Moment with Anita is one of the most known hangout joints for many Nigerian youths who are yearning for answers on health, law, relationship, education, culture, people, dating matters etc
Moment with Anita provides thousands the knowledge to become better persons as it pins many of society's problems on the floor with knockout punches to intimidate, arrest and tackle it squarely. At her instance, professionals go on a lecturing-spree to empower many of the always eager youths who ask questions-after-questions on the decisive steps to follow when faced with difficulties. Many have been empowered by the information provided from her platform and have immensely benefited.
I had a brief chat with Anita in which she shared a little info about her background.
"Ihebinike Anita is the last child of Mr. Herbert & Mrs. Victoria Ihebinike. She hails from Oru East LGA,Imo State.
After finishing her primary education in Agbado Model Primary School in Benin city, Edo State with a grade: "Merit" she proceeded to Emotan college also in Benin city, Edo state, Nigeria.
"Her father being a great disciplinarian and a lover of tradition and culture, sent her to Imo State to finish up her secondary education so that she would be exposed to the culture and traditions of her people.
"Anita Ihebinike lived with her uncle who happens to be a Traditional Ruler in Orlu, there she stayed and finished up her secondary education.
"After writing her junior WEAC, she was awarded scholarship by Imo State Government for being among the best three students.
When she finished her secondary education, she went further to acquire computer education before she got admitted in Imo State University to study Theatre Arts, she specialized in Media Arts and graduated with Second Class Upper.
During her NYSC, she worked as lecturer 2 in Oju College Of Education where she performed excellently and wrote some handouts that the department still use upto date.
she was made the unit head of her CDS Unit and was awarded the "Most Popular" award of 2012/2013 Corps Member.
After her youth service, she worked as a Cashier in Madonna Interiors. Later, she got a job as a customer service representative in Zenox where she worked for some time before she got a marketing Job with Sterling bank, Nigeria.
"Anita owns a gift shop and runs a group on facebook that is focused on educating, enlightening and empowering Nigerians (especially the youths) [for a better society].
Her greatest desire is to impact positively in the lives of Nigerians and the world in general. She wants to leave a legacy that is worth mentioning even in the future to come"
It is right to say without any iota of fear that Nigerian youths have come of age in recent times. With a culture of hardwork, a burning desire for success, a heart as strong as stone and blessed with an array of gifts and talents, one is forced to say that the days ahead will be one of joy.
These pacesetters who are defining the terrain of success anew are born like all of us but the hunger for a story of fortune has made them stand out from the rest.
These women of timbre and calibre, gifted and celebrated, endowed and beautiful, loved and cherished, regarded and respected are the amazons to light our hearts. The nobleness in the gestures they render will make them to be counted by posterity as belonging to the greats. These women have planted in our hearts seeds of triumph to look up to the future with such hope and optimism that the only success we can ascribe to ourselves is to support them.
It is fitting then to allow words of wisdom as this:
"Aka aja aja n'ebute ọnụ mmanụ mmanụ. Soiled hands bring forth, oily mouth. Hard work precedes merriment"
Let us all contribute our quota to this novelty plan in place for the emancipation of the teeming youths towards a better society. Let us one and all throw our weight behind them and not allow this hardwork waste.
