About Ugochi 

I am a Christian wife and mother of three beautiful children. I am an avid fan of health and fitness, and an ex runner, who has completed ten full marathons. I am passionate about purpose and fulfilling my life's mission. 

Why Start a Podcast?

One of the ways that I believe we can celebrate the Igbo culture and keep it alive is for me to speak to Igbo people from different walks of life, all over the world.

To that end, I decided to start a podcast, with an initial primary focus on Igbo women. As a woman of Igbo heritage, I have come into contact with so many inspirational Igbo women. There are so many of us, doing such great things, and I wanted a forum to celebrate our achievements.

I will be speaking to Igbo women, and women with a close tie to the culture, in different areas like Business, Finance, Entertainment, Life Coaching, Fitness, Philanthropy, to name a few.
