In this conversation, we explore the tenacity of the human spirit and the power of forgiveness in terms of self-growth and impact through the life and story of Awele Ideal.

#Changemaker Awele Ideal was physically and mentally abused as a child. Locked up for days without food or water. She endured many hardships but was determined to succeed despite the odds again. At the age of 10, she set her intention to prioritise her education.

She shares how she focused her intentions and how she coped. Awele's story of forgiveness is incredible..... Her Full Name - AWELECHUKWUKAUMEMMA IDEALLA ELUAKA (Nee EKEUGBAH) AWELECHUKWUKAUMEMMA means God's divine favor is greater than human strength.

IDEALLA….. A person that is regarded as perfect, ideal, unique, peculiar, and real.

Awele's words - "Your life is what you make of it"

AWELE IDEAL Esq. is an Asaba-based Legal Practitioner, human and Child Rights Advocate, Chartered Arbitrator, and Mediator who battled many childhood odds to carve a niche for herself in the legal profession.

She was called to the Nigerian Bar as a Solicitor and Advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in 2011, on completion of the Nigerian Law School.

Awele Ideal holds an LLM from the University of Benin, an LLB from the Delta State University, and a Diploma in Accounting from the same university.

She currently leads a thriving legal practice as the Principal Partner in Chambers of Ideal Chambers, Asaba, Delta State. She is perfecting skills she learned in her years of tutelage at the Delta State Ministry of Justice as Counsel in the Civil Litigation Department and pupillage in the law firms Chike Onyemenam SAN, and George-Ann Chambers, also in Asaba.

Her vibrant courtroom advocacy and litigation successes find expression in the several civil and criminal cases she has won. She is a first choice for handling many International Federation of Women Lawyers, (FIDA) pro bono cases for indigent persons, especially oppressed women and Children.

Following the death of a Benue youngster, Ochanya Elizabeth Ogbanje from sexual violence, Awele singlehandedly organized a rally in Asaba to condemn sexual violence against women and children in November 2018. She founded Ideal Child Foundation in 2019 to pursue similar goals. She was recently made a member of the Delta State Child Rights Implementation Committee.

“I am grateful for being blessed with generous mentors and I have experienced exciting and rewarding private legal practice covering vast aspects of Nigerian Law, including Land Law and Property Management, Commercial Law and Intellectual Property as well as Criminal Law since I began my law firm in 2015,” Awele enthused about her legal career so far.

An honest go-getter, Awele is self-motivated and sometimes uncomfortably blunt. A ready volunteer. She is the Secretary of the Ladies Section of the Ibori Golf and Country Club, Asaba, and a mother of three beautiful girls.

Awele’s personal story should be an inspiration to challenge young people that there is enormous strength in never surrendering.

She is the founder of the Ideal Child Foundation, supporting children in Nigeria.
