Social Executive – Ishioma Stacey Ishiekwene:
What is the meaning of your Igbo name and what State are you from?
Good or lucky head and I’m from Delta State- Obiarukru.
What motivated you to run to be part of the exec?
I have ummed and ahhed for far too long. ICSN do incredible things and very simply I wanted to be part of something incredible.
What has been your favourite meeting, event or experience to date at ICSN and why?
I’ve had too many favourites but Iri-Ji 2012 -when the ICSN Dance Troupe (Egwu Oganiru) graced the stage for the very first time has to be up there as my fav. It was amazing showcasing moves learnt at dance school that summer and to perform to such an exciting crowd. That performance was the birth of Egwu Oganiru, and as a member, Iri-Ji and the run-up to that day is my much-loved time of the year. In addition to Iri-Ji, every wedding, birthday party, award show and music video where I, alongside the ever energetic, award winning Egwu Oganiru get to promote the Igbo culture and ICSN through dance has been a blessing.
Surprise me with an unusual random fact about yourself?
I struggled to tell the time well into my early 20s
