ChideraAn award winning poet and artist who graduated from Assumption College Catholic High School has been appointed as the new Youth Poet Laureate by the City of Windsor.

Chidera Ikewibe, who graduated from Assumption in 2018, will serve as ambassador for the literary arts scene.

"I want to connect with our multicultural youth and encourage them to explore themselves and their cultural identity through poetry, through workshops, and programs, and new opportunities," said Ikewibe.

In 2018, while still a student at Assumption, Ikewibe won an Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association award for a play she wrote about the Nigerian Civil War.
