Remember her? Nigeria’s Vanessa Williams? The delectable screen goddess with gorgeous eyes? The Ex beauty queen cum actress has been off the movie scene for quite a while now and we miss her.
The mother of two has since relocated to the United States with her husband. Following a successful acting and modeling career, Regina Askia-Williams is currently an American-based registered nurse (RN), healthcare and educational activist, television producer, writer, and public speaker.
In 2014, when the deadly Ebola virus broke out she volunteered at a US Ebola health center to help eradicate the fast spreading virus.
Regina has not let up and is showing no signs of stopping any time soon. She recently rebranded herself by launching a website which is designed to showcase her work in health, nursing, education as well as her vibrant, new image. The site also provides the media and Regina’s fans with a user-friendly portal to read, connect and follow Regina.
Her new projects are also featured on the website: First is the R.A.N.E Project (Regina Askia for Nursing Excellence in Nigeria). The R.A.N.E Project is a program that advances the skills of nurses in health care delivery throughout Nigeria, which in turn, will save lives.
The Second is the African Health Dialogues, a weekly health care discussion on progress and gaps, costs and accessibility of medical /pharmaceutical products and services within the African and African Diaspora communities worldwide.
