Last year, Mary penned a touching note to her late sister, Eucharia Remmy, as she recounted how she learnt of her death 12 years ago. Mary recounted all her achievements for the year to her late sister, stating that her death left an impossible void to fill.

Last month, she wrote another note to her after beating 170 successful Entrepreneurs from 48 countries at Harvard University to win the Harvard OPM64 Idol. Describing it as surreal, she questioned who knew their dream was valid and expressed how sad she was that she wasn’t alive to share the moment with her.

It is no longer news that the wife of Iroko boss, Jason Njoku, is furthering her education at the prestigious American University.

In 2023, Mary was ecstatic after being recognised by the prestigious American magazine Forbes as one of the 50 most influential women in Africa. Mary expressed gratitude to her husband as she noted how she was only a Mile2-born Nnsukka girl before becoming a power figure.
