Niger State Gala

Over the last week, the city of Chicago hosted a trade mission from the State of Niger in an effort to strengthen the agricultural capabilities of the state. This occasion provided me the pleasure of meeting two incredible women from Poize Magazine, Nigeria’s first magazine for and about women entrepreneurs.

Comfort and Zella stand as role models and leaders, encouraging women in Africa to consider entrepreneurship and to empower them along the way.  I greatly admire their work and look forward to following and supporting them in the future.

While in Chicago, we were able to join them in a celebration and gala in honor of the work of Chief Servant of Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu. It was a beautiful event and a truly unique experience.
