About Queen Jennifer Ephraim 

Born on August 23, 1998 to her teenage mum who was just 14 year, Mrs Okoye Ifeoma Loveth from Aniocha local government area of Anambra state, the young Jennifer had her Nursery & Primary school in Holy Ghost Foundation School Abakaliki, Ebonyi state. She was later to move to Lagos, the South Western part of the country where she continued her education pursuit from SS1 and completed her secondary education in 2014. 

Same year, she secured admission into the University of Adonai, Benin Republic where she studied International Relations and French proudly bagged her first degree in the year 2018. She proceeded for her one year mandatory National Youth Service, NYSC at Petroleum Equalisation Fund and Management Abuja same year 2018. 

As a true manifestation that 2018 was indeed a special year for her, she also won her beauty pageant as Face of Democracy Nigeria South-East. After a successful and fruitful reign, she handed over to her successor in 2019 and went ahead to establish her NGO same year known as Queen Jennifer Ephraim Foundation. 

The organisation has remained a source of succour to the desolate and downtrodden. She described the official unveiling of the organization in the first Week of February 2020 as a dream come through, a vision which she had nurtured from the childhood.

In her public (speaking) engagements and indeed her writings, she has continued to lay a foundation for younger generations of Nigerians to find their space in life. 

She proudly signposts a role model and guidance to younger women through her constant interaction through avenues she creates on International Women Day, International Day of the Girl Child, Children's Day and more. Apart from the scholarship her foundation doles out, she has also paid serious attention to the hygiene of the girl child, particularly menstrual hygiene which greatly affects their reproductive health now or in the future
