President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan recently inaugurated the National Heritage Council & Endowment For The Arts in Abuja and one of those charged to bring their wealth of experience to bear is no one but one of Nigeria`s epitome of beauty and brain, Arc. Fifi Ejindu.
The choice of Fifi Ejindu as one of the members of the public private initiative, we gathered was precipitated from her impressive track records and passion for fashion, culture and philanthropy.
Hers is not all about beauty, she`s scored many first, both in academics and career.
During her college days, the graduate of the prestigious Pratt Institute of Architecture, New York, USA came out in flying colours when she beat her course mates to earn herself an enviable status of a First Class student in a male dominated career, and not just that, the paragon of beauty is holding a record as the very first female African Architecture graduate in that school.
Golden fish they say have no hiding place, little wonder she`s been one of Nigeria`s most celebrated female Architects. Architect Fifi has done quite a lot in the area of service to humanity.
A woman full of high taste for fashion and panache, aside being on board of National Heritage Council, she`s also part of the forthcoming celebration of Africa fashion and culture in the United Kingdom, The Africa Fashion Week that holds in Dorschester, in London.
As a member of the National Heritage Council and Endowment For The Arts, they`re charged to ensure the protection and conservation of places and objects of heritage significance and the registration of such places and objects; integrate heritage management into the planning system of government and the private sector and placement of heritage as a priority for nation-building and national identity.
According to her when she spoke briefly with your soar away National Enquirer, the aim is to secure funding, develop policies for the sector, create public awareness and education and encourage knowledge production in heritage subjects that place special emphasis on the development of living heritage projects and build a nation proud of its heritage.
She`s indeed a worthy ambassador of our culture and heritage.
