DESCRIBE YOUR CHILDHOOD/GROWING YEARS
Growing up in a family that practices subsistence agriculture, I engaged in peasant farming, and watering little flower pots as part of my daily chores before going to school. Also, music was paramount because my siblings and I, including my parents are naturally blessed with beautiful voices.


WHAT IS YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT?

My memorable moment is winning the Miss Earth Nigeria 2020 pageant, which was held virtual for the first time in the history of Nigerian pageants, being worthy to represent the brand globally.

ANY SPECIAL STORIES OR FACTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
The Ifeanyieze’s are known for using organic/naturally produced food seasonings in preparing daily meals. Most of our relatives find it absurd but growing our own food has taught us to eat and live healthy. These food seasonings are made from ginger, garlic, turmeric and honey.

WHAT IS THE MOST UNUSUAL THING YOU HAVE EVER DONE?
When I was in my second year in high school, I had spent a summer with a friend’s family that practice animal husbandry and i got to help and witness the delivery of a calf. It was such an unusual experience that I would never forget.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVOCACY?
Supporting Life on Earth with the use of Putrescible Waste in Agricultural Development.

WHAT TIPS CAN YOU SHARE TO PROMOTE ECOTOURISM & CLIMATE CHANGE?
Plan your trip and choose an adventure that is carbon off-setting in nature. Pack light and don’t leave any trash behind. Try bringing home happy memories of the trip to be one with nature and the people.



WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD OF YOUR COUNTRY?
I cannot be less proud of my country because we have from time memorial dealt on agricultural productions both for the economy and healthy lifestyle for the people, and most interestingly, our farmers are willing to become environmentally friendly also in our culture, our food and language diversity cannot be overlooked because it is our heritage and nobility make us unique.

WHAT CAN YOU PROMOTE ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY?
Nigeria has a diverse cultural heritage and as a result of this diversity we have tourists sites in different places in which we build up to conserve nature and promote bio diversity. I will be glad to showcase all these, especially the Ogbonike cave, Ezeagu waterfalls, Obudu cattle ranch and Ikkogosi warm springs etc.

WHAT TRIVIA ABOUT YOURSELF WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHARE?
My favorite ice cream is vanilla; I can't stand the sound of mosquitos and as a child I once used wall dust as face powder.
