Because the impact of the idea is what is of utmost concern, I am dedicated to improving the lives of others by investing in them and adding to their knowledge "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SPITCH NG (The Public Speaking Project)
My project was based on empowering individuals to gain confidence and suppress inferiority complex through the art and act of public speaking. With the project, I, in collaboration with some Literary and Debating Societies had training sessions for the University of Ibadan Students who paid a token for the training session which lasted 3-4 hours per training day of which it was a sum total of 14 days. With my project, I impacted about 50 Students directly and 90 indirectly.
