Alright folks, storytime!
My government name is Chukwuma, only the brave and persistent call me that but you can call me Chima if you'd like.
I was raised in Enugu, Nigeria with my grandparents. At the age of 14, I moved to the Bronx, NYC where I completed and obtained my high school diploma.
During my time at high school, I developed a taste for captivating stories. Stories are important tools to disrupt silence and drive productive conversations. This led to my pursuit of a dual Bachelor's degree in Screen Studies and Economics at Clark University by May 2019. I became a US Permanent Resident and in the Spring of 2018, I attended the Council for International Education Exchange (CIEE) Open Campus program in Berlin, Germany.
This past summer of 2018, I interned at Ogilvy on the Lenovo account team. While I enjoyed my overall account management experience at Ogilvy, I plan to pursue opportunities in the production department.
Currently, I work as a freelance digital production coordinator at McCann NY. Clients: 140 wireless (Verizon)
In my spare time, I can be seen exercising in a gym, photographing, editing photos and videos, binge-watching Netflix's "Insecure" or trying out a new dish.
