The good news is, this is the beginning of adventure for many of us and on that note, we would like to introduce to you Queen Gideon from Imo State, Nigeria. As our November star of the month, she has an interesting story to share with us. She currently lives in Los Angeles, California where she acquired her college education - she attended attended Pepperdine University earned her undergrad's degree and MBA in Chemical Engineering.
Queen is very passionate about women’s issues - an activist for women's education- and Nigeria. Everyone deserves knowledge to grow and expand their scope regardless of their sex, race, disability, etc. She strongly believes that corporations can be profitably and also good stewards of the environment. A belief that drives her zeal for her work as an Environmental Engineer at a metal forging facility where they manufacture parts for private, government and commercial clients in the aerospace industry.
Her current and previous projects are as bright as her faith. Keen on preserving her culture (the Igbo culture), she is the owner/creative director of Abebie’s. A series designed to teach children how to speak the Igbo language. The objective is to instill pride in the next generation and preserve the Igbo language and culture.

Check us out on www.ellyeleanor.org to follow more of our work," she said to shed more light on her mind-blowing projects.
Besides the obvious fact that queen works very hard, she also takes out time to play hard. Some how she is able to create that balance. She loves traveling, she is a huge fan of Nigerian /African music. "I currently have Pana by Tekno on heavy rotation," she said.
