Ada Echetebu Esq.

BIO

Echetebu Norris, Esq., Co-founder and President of the Board of Directors Ada Echetebu Norris, Esq. is the conceptual creator and co-founder of The Endeavor For Hope Foundation. Born in Enugu, Nigeria, Ada is the product of a Nigerian father and a Kazakh mother, both of whom were professors at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka during Ada's childhood and early teens. Ada's primary education took place in Nigeria as well as in schools in England and the former Soviet Union. Ada was able to see the discrpancies between the educational systems in these different countries and began at an early age to ponder the consequence of exposure to good education on the people of Africa. Having completed her undergraduate and post-graduate education in the United States, Ada decided it was time to help give the children of Sub-Saharan Africa the same chances she received through being fortunate enough to have access to exceptional education in the United States. The Endeavor For Hope Foundation is very dear to Ada's heart, and she believes it will make a difference in the lives of Africans. Ada Echetebu Norris, Esq. is a graduate of Bryn Mawr College (B.A. '98) and Tulane Law School (J.D. '03) in the United States. She resides in Houston, Texas, U.S.A. with her husband and EFHF co-founder, Zachary D. Norris, Esq.
