ImeIme Umana:First-ever female president of Harvard Law Review
A shining example is Ms. ImeIme Umana, a Nigerian descent, but born in the United States, beats other eleven candidates – mostly Whites off-course, to become the First-ever female president of Harvard Law Review– a position that former president Barak Obama once held while at Harvard Law School.
I ran into Ms. Umana at Harvard in 2013 during my leadership program at Harvard Kennedy School.She is a brilliant mind.
With two other Nigerians, we talked passionately about Nigeria’s decadence and way forward. Despite the immense brainpower and professional expertise that we Nigerians have acquired here in the U.S., Nigeria and most of Africa continue to be ruled by selfish, vision-less and incompetent politicians.
Sometimes, I wonder if Africa brains resident in the U.S., are given the chance to govern and lead their nations, what will happen?
Will Africa continue to see the abject poverty, degradation and degeneration we see today in the so-called mother earth?
Congratulations to Ms. Umana.
I know she will do amazing job. We are so proud of your historic and professional accomplishment.
