Her media appearances have been centered on her charitable work; helping young women reach their potentials, and empowering the girl child.
Two of her books are “It Pays To Be Patient” and “Helping Her Win.” Both books are motivational books, targeted at young girls so as to give them the right orientation to achieve sustainable growth and profitable careers. Here is how she chose her own career.
Juliet Odogwu Early Life
Juliet Odogwu was born Chiamaka Juliet Okoye on July 3, 1987. She is the child of Mr. Christopher Okwudili and Mrs. Helen Amaka Okoye. She is the first child in a family of 6 children; 4 boys and 2 girls. She is originally from Awka Local Government Area of Anambra State, Nigeria.
She attended primary and secondary schools both in Amawbia, Awka Local Government, Anambra State. She then attended the Federal Polytechnic, Oko, Anambra State, where she obtained a National Diploma (ND) in Public Administration. From there she went on to study at the Institute Of Management And Technology (IMT), Enugu State, she obtained her Higher National Diploma (HND). After spending some time abroad, she returned to Nigeria, and proceeded to study at the National Broadcast Academy, Ikeja, Lagos State- at that institution she studied broadcast journalism.
Juliet Odogwu discovered her writing talent at a young age; she was still in secondary school when became active in that sector. She was 16 years of age when she released her first book titled “It Pays To Be Patient.”
The book was a success; due to its motivational nature it became popular among young girls, and also among guardians of young girls, trying to instill qualities such as hard work and patience in their wards.
Publishing that book, especially at such a young age also opened many doors and opportunities for her; it gave her a foundation to build on. She continued on that career path, becoming better and bigger in her craft.
She published a magazine called Romeo and Juliet during her studies at the Institute Of Management And Technology (IMT), Enugu State. The magazine was a lifestyle magazine, and talked about how to make the best use of resources, have fun, and enjoy quality time with loved ones. As a magazine targeting young people, it also talked about love, relationships, and everything in between.
An exaggerated report on the magazine stated “anybody who went to MIT during that period must know about the magazine.” The magazine, while another important milestone in her publishing career, did not last very long on the shelves.
Juliet then returned to publishing books which is her first love. She published Helping Her Win in 2021; this is another motivational book, but it is also instructional to parents, guardians and well-wishers of young girls; telling them what they need to do impact in the lives of the young girls, and to help them succeed.
After establishing herself as a highly rated writer with so much to offer, especially to the girl child, she turned her attention to doing some good physically. She established the Chiamaka Ugoo Foundation which is committed to helping the girl child.
The foundation empowers young women, helping them with their education and skill acquisition. This foundation provides money for young girls in need of sponsorship so as to ensure that they stay in school. Older children are given the opportunity to learn vital skills so that they can be self-reliant.
The foundation also provides mentorship to young girls; linking them to successful women in business and the corporate world, so that they can have role models to look up to, and so aspire to be successful themselves in the future.
She is also an On Air Personality; she hosts the popular “Gwam Oku” (Talk To Me) radio program on KpanKpando 101.9 FM, in which she discusses issues like politics, governance and trending issues. The aim of the program is to analyze these issues in the clearest terms so that the people on the streets can understand them better.
