Talk about being in good company. This university of Calabar graduate of history and international studies, burst into lime light early on when she won the Most Beautiful girl in Akwa- Ibom crown.

We are keeping our eyes of this one and we are positive that the sky is her limit.
TINUOLA OLULEYE – CHARITY
There are a lot of things we love about this half Ibo half Yoruba lady. Not only is she beautiful and intelligent but she has a kind heart. So kind infact that in 2010 she launched a charity called THE JL WOMAN PROJECT. This charity project comprises JL women who dedicate their time and resources to teach and empower young girls (esp in orphanages) who have no one to help them. They help them with self-esteem issues, career choices, independence etc. This of course has impacted positively in the lives of this young girls. We celebrate Tinu for it is rare for a young woman to spare her time and resources to the lifting of others. Alongside charity, this business mogul is CEO and head designer of James Lully brand. Their products include Bags, clothes, perfumes and accessories. This year’s Charity fund raiser has been set for July 24th, hope to see you there.

CHRIS ANYANWU – SENATOR
It is impossible to encounter this Amazon and not fall in love with her. I have always been an admirer. She is one of the few women who have maintained a steady political rise. Not only is she a politician, she is an ace-broadcaster, author and administrator. I can begin to doll out her achievements which has spanned a period of almost 20 years, but it will interest you to know that she conceptualized, produced and anchored one of the longest lasting programmes on NTA - “NEWSLINE and she is the force behind HOT 98.3FM Abuja, a top-rated, award-winning radio station in the FCT with the far-reaching coverage spanning eight states. Hot FM also now operates another station in Owerri, Imo State. Senator Chris Anyanwu will be returning to the senate in may as he beat her opposition in the just concluded senatorial election.
