    Gala fashion magazine will showcase Nigerian actress, model and philanthropist - Jubilee Gamaniel on the cover of their July 2014 issue.


    As we connect with individuals around the globe impacting the world around them we are always inspired by the plethora of informative interviews we are humbled to conduct with various individuals from such diverse walks of life.


    Today we have a second ‘interview’ with the always intriguing and exciting interviewee – Jubilee Gamaniel
    Ms. Gamaniel also known as Miss Nigeria will appear on new TV Mini-Series ‘Hot Talk Show’ that is now in pre-production. Currently she serves as the CEO for the independent production company, Paradigm Pictures International Inc.


    During this particular interview we took a different approach to highlight her breaking news that Gala fashion magazine will showcase here on their front cover of their July 2014 issue.


    If you were one of the few that has yet to read her first interview here on CNN’s iReport here is an excerpt:
    “One of my biggest challenges was convincing everyone around me that acting and modeling is what I wanted to pursue as a real career.


    I wanted them to see why it was so important to me, now they know and see where I was and where I am and this makes me happy.


    Fact is, this is a very competitive business, the same way you go in fast, you might get kicked out even faster. But I believe it is important to stay true to your work ethic (bull-dog tenacity) and personal integrity mixed with allot of persistence will get doors open.”


    Please look for her first interview here on the CNN iReport page and make a note to read the July 2014 issue of Gala Fashion Magazine.
