"I'm in awe of their courage" - Ivanka Trump gushes about meeting escaped Chibok girls (PHOTOS)



US President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, cannot contain her joy after meeting with two of the nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2014.

Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu on June 27 met with Mr. Trump and Ivanka at the White House. 

Bishara, 20, and Pogu, 19 were among 57 girls who escaped from Boko Haram in Borno State by jumping off the back of a truck in 2014.

The duo and several other girls who escaped moved to the United States to complete school.

Ivanka on Monday night shared more photos from their meeting. She captioned the pictures:

“Honored to have welcomed Joy and Lydia, two incredible young women from Chibok, Nigeria to the White House last week. They shared with me their remarkable journey in overcoming tremendous adversity, and I am in awe of their courage and heart. I look forward to watching them flourish as they begin a new chapter at Southeastern University this fall.

“Joy and Lydia, I am so proud of you both! Thank you for inspiring us with your story.”





With the help of a Christian nonprofit and a Nigerian activist group, the Chibok girls were able to attend a boarding school in Virginia. 

Bishara and Pogu transferred their senior year and recently graduated from Canyonville Christian Academy. Both gave speeches at the ceremony.

The pair will attend Southeastern University on a full scholarship when schools resume.
