Highlighting Our Community: South Florida Represents – Chetachi Egwu

Another phenomenal South Florida representative, Chetachi Egwu is someone whom I respect for her character and life experiences. We meet briefly during the first inaugural Miami Fashion Film Festival in 2013 and through the arts have maintained a connection ever since. The charisma from Chetachi, inspires you to go out and meet someone new, and to share the energy. Get to know Chetachi and expert her vibe.
