My name is Chiamaka Obuekwe a.k.a Social Prefect. I am a travel blogger, and writer. I am very enthusiastic about travel, and I love to explore. I am very passionate about tourism within Nigeria; showing people the beautiful places we have and telling our own stories. I am also co-founder/ C.E.O of Social Prefect Tours which is a Nigerian tourism company where we organize tours. Strangely, I wasn’t the social prefect in secondary school even though a lot of people have this notion. I was actually given the nickname by a few friends at work and it just stuck when I wanted to start my blog. I am a ‘wakawaka’ person who likes to travel and socialize, so the nickname ‘social prefect’ was just very apt.
It all started after I discovered some beautiful spots in Nigeria and realized people weren’t talking about them. This made me start my own blog where I documented all of my journeys. I studied International Relations and wanted to be a Diplomat. I actually got a job after NYSC, but there was a retrenchment exercise at the company and I was one of those affected. I decided to continue blogging and organizing tours. It’s been two years of organizing tours and getting recognition.
Within Nigeria, there are a lot places that I really love and enjoyed touring, but I’d pick Bauchi as my favourite; I totally love Wiki Warm Springs, Yankari Game Reserve. When you visit these spots, you forget your worries. South Africa is really beautiful, and I think they’ve done a lot with tourism. They have been able to develop some tourism resources that we also have in Nigeria, and they are making so much money from them.
As a travel blogger, I often experience culture shock. A great example is in the South African ‘food culture’; they don’t like too muchFollow on twitter Follow @BeautifulBlogga
