Nancy Isime (born 17 December 1991) is a Nigerian actress, model and media personality.
Early life and background
In 2009, Isime won the Miss Valentine International beauty pageant, and finished second in the Miss Telecoms Nigeria beauty contest. As a model she has worked for the likes of "House of Marie", "Ade Bakere", "Adebayo Jones", "Zizi Cardow", "Shakara Couture", "Konga Online" and others. Isime has said of her modelling: "It is all about the ability to always try and to keep coming back until you get your big break. In Nigeria, modelling is not as it is in the western countries where you get your big break and that is it. Here, you can get your big break and still go back down, so it is very imperative that you get your big break and continue to work hard and continue to come back for more."
Isime began a career as an actress in the TV series Echoes in 2011.
