Chisom Selected as Role Model for Igbo Diaspora Heritage Festival

Chisom Oforah Miss Igbo America 2018 Star of Igbo Language and Culture 

The new Miss Igbo America 2018 winner Miss Chisom Oforah has been chosen by the Igbo Diaspora Cultural Heritage Committee as a great role model to assist us in reaching younger generation Igbos who may be inspired by her achievements in the area of Igbo language and Culture. Chisom fits the profile of what the Igbo Diaspora Cultural Heritage Committee is seeking for ie a young intelligent and articulate Igbo born in the Igbo Diaspora who understands and speaks Igbo Language.

Miss Igbo America Pageant Founder and Director Miss Chidinma Emenike informed us that she would be available to perform such roles when the need arises. Speaking to Chisom’s mom she told us about the great desire shown by young Chisom even as a young teenager she prefers listening to Igbo music instead of Rap music often popular with teenagers her age. Her mom also told us that her daughter was always drawn to anything Igbo  infact when we the Judges asked Chisom to name one thing that is often associated with an Igbo person she responded in Igbo of course “na Ndigbo na agba mbo rinne” meaning that Igbos are known for their hard work, an answer that greatly pleased the audience.

Chisom would appear on stage for a standing ovation at the 2nd Igbo Diaspora Cultural Heritage Festival coming up August 17-August 18 2018 at the Proud Bird Center and Holiday Inn Express both in Los Angeles California. The sky is the limit for Chisom already a Nollywood director has promised her a role in a new Nollywood movie.

Asusu Igbo ga adi Iseeeee!
