I am Rita Nkechi Ofili. a wheelchair user, a graduate from university of Lagos Nigeria and an indigene of Ibusa, Oshimili North,  Delta state, Nigeria.

I am a professional model, host, presenter, Disabled activist and spokesperson for people living with disabilities in Nigeria.

I would like to reach out and help other people living with disabilities who are trying to cope with body image, confidence and inclusion of persons with disabilities into modelling, fashion and entertainment Industry.

Throughout my life I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by family who have loved and nurtured me with care, which has encouraged me to be better both inside and out.

CUWA modelling Agency embraced me and developed in me real passion for modelling, presenting, hosting and advocating for people with disabilities. It has been pleasantly overwhelming with the number of opportunities that have come my way. I have done some run way shows to my credit and also looking forward to commercials.
