Cheryl Adaeze Ibezim received a Master of Education degree with major in Educational Leadership from the Clark Atlanta University, Georgia on Monday, May 20, 2019.
Adaeze (Princess), the daughter of Prince Cyriacus and Ezi-Ada Caroline Ibezim, who has been running a non-governmental organization, NGO, Back-To-School Transformation (https://backtoschooltransformation.org/), dedicated to the upliftment of education standards in her parents’ place of birth, Obowo in Imo State, Nigeria, got her first degree in English Literature, minor in Psychology from Kean University, also in the United States.
Passionate about qualitative education for all, Adaeze intends, among others, to continue with her advocacy for better learning environment and access to relevant books and instructional materials in the schools in Obowo, Imo State and beyond.
She has been vigorously soliciting donations towards this selfless effort and the program last December was a huge success as many pupils and teachers benefited.
Her next Education Mission to Nigeria is programmed to be bigger and better going by the responses she has been getting from public spirited individuals, schools and organizations who are equally concerned about the sad situation of the state of education in the communities that she is covering.
Significant as the responses have been, however, a lot more is still needed if appreciable impact is to be made in the lives of the school children she interacted with during her last visit, who are eager to read voraciously but do not have the books to read.
Pictures here show Adaeze with her mother and siblings, Ezinwa Ralph Ibezim and CJ Ibezim as well as some of her mates and friends at the Panther Stadium, Atlanta Georgia, during the graduation ceremony.
