Stephanie Uviovo

Hi! My name is Stephanie Uviovo. I am 18 years old. My birthday is on the 12th of April and my hometown is Port Harcourt in Nigeria. I am in my second year and currently studying International Relations. I am very passionate about my country and after I graduate, I hope to establish my own NGO to create environmental awareness and foster big environmental changes in Nigeria.

I have been interested in make-up, painting, fashion, poetry, gymnastics, and nail art for as long as I can remember because they allow me to explore my creative side. When I was younger, I was considered to be much more of a fashionista and I even won a beauty pageant hosted by my high school. Being the romantic that I am, I love reading romance fiction books and watching anime, Korean, and Chinese dramas.
