We all know how essential education is in life, but that doesn't mean that those who aren't well educated can't succeed.
Mrs. Nike Davies, often known as Chief Nike, is a Nigerian woman who never attended school but has made a substantial contribution to the country. She is well-known not just in Nigeria, but also in other nations throughout the world.
Nike, an.indigene of Ogidi in Kogi State, was born in 1951. According to reports, she was a gifted student who attended primary school but had to drop out due to her father and grandmother's inability to pay her school fees. She quit school to work in her family's craft business, which involves traditional weaving, dying, Adire production, drumming, and other activities.
She learned the trade and eventually advanced to the level of an expert.
She began creating a number of works that made her famous, she was invited to exhibit her work at various events when she was young, and from there she established the 'Nike Art Gallery,' which is now well-known across the country and around the world.
Nike is a competent craftswoman who also specializes in training aspiring artisans, which she has done for a number of people in Nigeria and around the world.
Despite the fact that Nike did not attend school, she has been invited to speak about her artworks, which include Adire Making and Batik, at many universities. In 2007, she was invited to give a talk on Crafts, Arts, and Adire Making, as well as Batik, at Harvard University.
Despite not attending school, Nike pursued her dreams and is now one of the most successful women in the country.
