Vote for Miss Lagos!

Unfortunately, the website won't let me save her picture. So, please follow the link to see her beautiful pic and vote for my friend. I work with this young lady and she really deserves the opportunity to represent her state, Lagos.

Ugonna S. Anosike is an exciting, driven, young lady who was born August 1, 1980 in Houston Texas, and is the eldest of 4 children. Although she currently resides in Missouri City, Texas, her home is Ntigha, Isiala Ngwa, Local Government Area, Abia State. She graduated from Oakwood College in Huntsville Alabama in 2004 with a degree in Biology. While in school she was a member of the Ecology club, the Science club, and the Student National Medical Association. She is currently employed at Baylor College of Medicine, where she aides in the research of human genomes. Her love for advocacy and human rights has spearheaded her plan to attend law school in the fall of 2008. Ugonna is also a member of a social club by the name of B.A.S.E. (Black Able Sisters of Elegance). Upon joining B.A.S.E. she realized the value in community service, and what it really meant to give back to the less fortunate. While in the organization she volunteered at soup kitchens, homeless shelters, nursing homes, and the Boys and Girls club. In Houston, Ugonna served as the secretary of the Ngwa Houston Chapter youth wing. As a member of this organization she helped to organize various activities for the youth and young adults to promote the awareness of the culture of NGWA. Ugonna is also very active at her church; she is one of the leaders of praise and worship and is the assistant leader for the children’s choir. Ugonna’s goal for the future besides being an attorney is to start a mentoring program for young Nigerian girls to encourage them to embrace their culture, and to teach them how to be elegant, God-fearing, leaders for the future of Nigeria.
