Reviews

"From the moment you step off of the plane there is an abundance of knowledge surrounding you. It was heart warming to know you were in the motherland; where life began. It felt like home. The people like distant family. The purest form of beauty. The release of every fear or worry you've ever had gone in an instant. Sure I can just describe Nigeria but to know it you have to live it to understand. Cant wait to live it again!" - Tanjela Jones

"ThinkAfrica literally gave me the greatest experience of my life, I cannot explain the gratitude for the overall time spent in the motherland I'll be going back annually, without a doubt." - Kenny Godfrey

I wasn’t sure if this was possible given the time crunch and financial expense—but I look a leap of faith anyway and began to fill out the interest form. And, I am glad I did. The experience was remarkable and so well worth it!

A few days later I got a call from a ThinkAfrica executive member who answered all my questions and ad...

Tells us about your experience during the Pageant.

The Miss Nigeria USA Pageant was an interesting and unforgettable experience. I spent a week in New York in a house with 16 other women with different personalities, goals, backgrounds and only two bathrooms you would think that would be a recipe for disaster but one thing we all had in common is our love our country. From making new friends, to having the opportunity to hear the plans and dreams and the hope our generation has in Nigeria was refreshing and I truly appreciate the experience, crown or now crown.  It also brought to light for me some down falls our country...
