I am a fellow creative soul who loves to express myself creatively and have finally realized that it’s not something I do to please others or be accepted, to show off or to make money (Definitely not!!). Being creative is part of who I am and when I don’t get to be creative I feel robotic.
Am Ojo Judith Ihechukwu, a Native of Odiokwu community in Ahoada West (LGA), Rivers State, Nigeria. From a family of 7( Dad, Mom, Big Bros, Big Sis, my Twin sis, myself, and a younger Bro) My Mom is An Abian who fell in love with an Odiokwu man, a proudly Riverian, My Dad loves his Culture, speaks the dialect to us all times, as a growing kid it sound so funny to my ears but, at time goes on I have to stop the self-denier and accept that’s where am coming from and that’s who I am.
READ : OUR CULTURE, OUR HERITAGE
As I always said, if Ekpeye sounds strange in my Ears and Dad still speaks it, then there is something Unique about My culture I lack knowledge of. One day I’ll be opportune to dig dip about my Culture and be part of it, as other Igbo kids in my class who will always speak Igbo and say things about it, all I knew as a kid was how to prepare my native soup because it was and always my favorite soup first before Egusi .
Am from a family where we have nothing but we have love enough for the world, i am grateful to my parents for the Faith they have in me, One lesson I learnt from my parents is Honesty, I have got White Eyes, dark hair, Caramel in complexion, Good set of teeth and a load of happiness when around you. Have 2 friends Uzah Anastacia n Okere Emmanuel. I Love BLACK but Look Sweet with Red, I dislike Tea and Egg then I like Garri and a nice Soup, I love Traveling, Reading, Music, eating and writing etc.
I Have a talent of Hair Making which am great at but with more training I will be Awesome, Am jovial and Mean. Growing up as a child I was a Crius Kid, I have always wanted to become a lawyer, In my primary school days, I was my class monitor in Total Child Nursery and Primary School, you never look for me during the school choreography because am always in front shaking off stress, When I wrote common entrance exams I was given a direct entry into Federal Science and Technical College Ahoada in Rivers State where I Was made the assistant Hostel captain of Independent House in the year 2010, without an interview nor election.
In the year 2012 i was made the Vice President of (F. S.T.C) Ahoada Reunion of 2011 set after graduation, in the year 2014 I was made the Secretary and also withheld my former post as the Vice president of the (F. S. T. C).

Stubbornness is that very weakness that I derive confidence from, It gives me a strength of being independent Optimism, Commitment, Resilience (my Greatest Strength) Self-confidence, Self-Control and Willingness. Strong Analytical abilities, My Future Goals is to be a successful Independent wife with a PhD degree,
my Role Model is Dr Chiedozie Ifeanyichukeu Atuonwu, I call him a legend, A man of his words, An intelligent man with so many stories, the fact he always thinks outside the Box motivates my way of reasoning, One thing u have to learnt from him is his word. “Give in all the best you have and beyond what you have, you will realize that there is something you can’t steal from Nature and that’s The Best and effort one put into his Activities”. am a living testimony today has a purpose, my child birth story is that very reason I stand up firm to behold what that was to be lost. Never say Yes where you are to say No, know your capacity and standard, Where necessary make your voice to be heard…. BE BOLD BUT NOT TOO BOLD.
