Social Media Trend: #BeLikeNgoziChallenge

They said, success has many fathers but failure is an orphan. In the spirit of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala‘s achievement of becoming the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, social media has been awash with praises dedicated to her honour. Surprisingly, those who called, through a petition, for her honorary doctorate degree to be withdrawn by Yale University in 2015, were one of the first people to congratulate her.

In line with the moment, #BeLikeNgoziChallenge has been trended on social media. It is a testament to how inspiring Okonjo-Iweala’s achievement is to the girl child all over the world. According to Okonjo-Iweala,

‘…I hope it is a sign not only to women and girls in my country but to women and girls worldwide that the world is ready and women can do it.’

With this trend, #BeLikeNgoziChallenge, ladies are seen imitating Ngozi Okonjo’s fashion identity; the ankara attire and her trademark head tie.

In a very comical twist, the men were not left out as young men have jumped on this trend to congratulate the former Nigerian finance minister and to also show their support for the girl child.

For as long as many of us have known Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, she has always brought international recognition to the ankara attire and also a worthy ambassador to Nigeria in particular and Africa at large. As much as #BeLikeNgoziChallenge is the right kind of social media trend to jump on, Ngozi Okonjo is an example of the right kind of role model to emulate. Be Like Ngozi!
