" Team spirit and creativity fueled by critical thinking drives my passion towards ensuring that youths become resourceful and self-reliant in the society.
Being a Millennium Fellow is an exciting opportunity to enhance my critical thinking and creativity skills in making relevant impacts on schools and communities in every way possible.
The Millennium Fellowship will also avail me the opportunity to work progressively with other change makers across the globe in creating a sustainable economy for our youths. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Entrepreneur's Mind Initiative (TEMI)
Project TEMI themed "Your skill and the money you need" was a 4 days virtual training held to address the issue of unemployability of the youths in my state. Most of the youths already have one entrepreneurial skills or the other, but do not know how to leverage on it to earn money. I invited various professionals from different entrepreneurial fields to speak with the registered participants on the business of their respective skills. That is, how to market their skills, strategies to proper business management and how best to earn money with one's skill.
