A Microbiology graduate of the Abia State University Uturu, Iheanyi currently studies at the International Institute of Journalism (IIJ), Abuja. His works have been featured prominently by United Press International Washington DC, one of the largest news companies in the world, and the Campuslife Column of The Nation Newspaper – one of the best-selling newspapers in Nigeria, where he won the Campuslife/NBC/Coca-Cola Best Investigative Reporter of the year 2009. While writing for the above media organisations, Iheanyi worked under the tutelage and mentorship of top journalists like Phil Rees, ex-producer BBC London; Krista Kapralos, popular US journalist; and Late Ngozi Nwozor-Agbo of the Campuslife fame.
Iheanyi is passionate about positive developments in Nigerian institutions, sharing ideas, gaining new knowledge and skills. He craves unending hopes of a better Nigeria; a Nigeria that will meet the hopes and aspirations of her citizens and desires of seeing a nation that will honestly and earnestly work towards the development of her numerous human and capital potentials. Hence, he seeks to Highlight Nigerians Who make A Difference through this blog. He believes this is the surest way that good will triumph over bad, light will prevail over darkness and Nigeria will be restored to the path of her glorious past, pride and image.
Through this blog he will echo the voice of the man on the street, who strives to make Nigeria great! He will also tell stories of everyday heroes – people who do acts of greatness in our communities without being noticed or rewarded by the society. If you observe such acts of greatness by ordinary citizens, kindly record them and forward to him. He will publish them for the world to see.
