Chidera Agude – Miss Nigeria in America 2013

CAgude copyMs. Chidera Agude of Corona, California was crowned the 2013 Miss Nigeria in America on Saturday, September 21, 2013 adding her to a lineage of Nigerian American women who have served as ambassadors of empowerment for African women in the Diaspora.
Ms. Agude holds a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science from California State University, East Bay, and is pursuing a dual master’s degree in International relations and Fashion. Working as a personal stylist for a full line luxury department store styling and outfitting wardrobes for individuals, her personal philosophy is “The world is your stage, and everyday your outfit picks a different character”.  Her dream is to become an international fashion entrepreneur and use her degree in political science merge lines of philanthropy and self-fulfillment within Nigeria.
In prior years, she has served as a volunteer for Grace Mission for African Development NPO where she assisted in medical missions in the village of Obe, Enugu Nigeria. The purpose of this NPO was to reach out to those less fortunate that cannot afford or travel for medical care, and I found that very enriching as it thought me service and commitment to society.
Ms. Agude’s platform as the Miss Nigeria in America 2013 will be to advocate for Women’s Rights and focus on Domestic Abuse through her campaign (Project Voice).  She will also work with MNIA Project Women’s Education (Project WE) to promote education among women.
