Harvard Law Review elects its first black woman president... & guess what?

She's Nigerian!

ImeIme Umana, a young Nigerian, has been elected president of the Harvard Law Review. She will be the first black woman to hold the position.

Umana, who graduated from Harvard College in 2014, expects to receive her Harvard law degree in 2018, according to her LinkedIn profile. She focused on government and African-American studies as an undergraduate, while working at Harvard's Hiphop Archive & Research Institute and serving as president of the university's Institute of Politics.


The current issue of the Harvard Law Review is focused on another history-making president: Barack Obama, who was the first black man elected to the Harvard Law Review presidency before he was President of the United States.

ImeIme we're cheering you on! We pray your future will be even more exceptional!
