Awareness campaign on SDGs. The importance of SDGs were made known to the students and most especially it's implementation. These awareness were done at environmental conference LASU, LASU inter varsity debate etc.
Also bills boards and posters were made to display the goals and there importance. In addition we met a number of students to support our cause, enlightening them on the importance of volunteering and social work and also to work together to make our society a better place for all. Some like minded students were met, we shared our experiences with them and in all they were really willing to work towards the implementation of the SDGs.
About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Ahmodu Oladejo. I am a citizen of Nigeria, West Africa. I am a student of Lagos state University Ojo.
Since I was in Junior high school, taking up leadership role, supervising projects, impacting knowledge, and ensuring a better community, have just been a nice coincidence. I never knew it was an integral part of me, I never knew it was something I would have passion for.
Before I gained admission into the university, I was fortunate to read a book titled: the power of focus by Les Hewitt and Luc d'Abadie. There I learnt that being in the university is not only about being a bookworm but rather about gaining relevant experiences and finding solutions to problems.
Having realized this, I gladly make the most of any opportunity that could help me develop myself and give back to the community by making it a better place.
The millennium fellowship is one of such great opportunities.
I look forward so eagerly to take up challenges during this fellowship and develop relevant skills.
