Nkechi Ibeneme is a mother of four and a graduate of Business Education from the Faculty of Education of the old Anambra State University of Technology (ASUTECH) Awka, now, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, and she taught various subjects in several Secondary Schools across Nigeria.
Her passion for teenagers led her to float a teen’s club in 1997 called “Vantage Teens Club”. She later published a book in 2006 titled “Your Future in Your Hands…drugs, sex and human trafficking, what the teenager should know.”
Propelled by that same passion, she launched the print edition of Teens Connect Magazine in 2014 having resigned from Punch Nigeria Limited (Publishers of Punch Newspapers) where she served in the Advertisement department for 13 years (from 2001 – 2014).
Alongside the publication of the print edition of Teens Connect Magazine, she took up the task of editing MotorTrend Africa Magazine – a specialized motoring publication – as the Managing Editor; a demonstration of her versatility despite having an undying passion to work with teenagers. This undying passion inspired the launch of the online version of the teenage magazine.
