Ini Dima-Okojie (born 24 June 1990) is a Nigerian actress from Edo State, Nigeria. She resigned from her job in investment banking to enroll at the New York Film Academy.

  • The defining moment for me as a person was finding the courage to quit investing banking in 2013 and enrolling at New York Film Academy. That set the tone for my journey and everything that I am today.
  • I will like to see more platforms and channels available to showcase and present the work thespians put in. I will like to see the necessary infrastructure in place to ensure the industry thrives. I will like to know we are operating in an enabling and not stifling environment.
  • Style is what brings out your best self! What you’re comfortable in and what makes you feel great.
  • Don’t be afraid to dream, and don’t stop at just dreaming, do everything you can to make it a reality.
  • Sometimes I have a colour in mind or I have a general vibe in mind or I have a fabric that I just really want to try. So, I start with whatever it is I can hold on to and we build it from there and I welcome all of the input.
  • The first thing I ever did was be a production assistant on a series called Before Thirty. So, I watched behind-the-scenes and then I started to look out for auditions, I started auditioning and I started bagging roles and people started referring me.
  • Whenever I watch films or TV shows, it takes me to a place where I want to be able to do the same thing and make people feel the way I do. I always wanted to act.
