University of Ibadan | Ibadan, Nigeria | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 3
" I am a strong believer of Petek Kabackci's assertion. He stated that " to be wealthy, powerful or famous does not matter to me the most. Starting a social good ripple that will turn to an ocean wave matters to me the most." This motif and the passion for creating positive changes in the education system of my community is what drives me.
My being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will help develop and fine-tune the skills necessary for my social impact journey. I am excited to be a part of this movement because I believe that being connected to people of same mindset and goals will help increase tremendously my drive to do better. This fellowship will help in no small way in putting me and my social impacts on a global pedestal.
I envision a period filled with excellent learning, networking, getting necessary experiences, innovation and creativity. This is good tidings "
Millennium Fellowship Project: WeLearn Initiative
The WeLearn Initiative is a project aimed at advancing the SDG4 by helping in grooming students who will confidently write their exams themselves without the aid of a third party. The goal is to instil in students who are preparing for their Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations(SSCE) confidence in their ability to pass their papers unaided. To achieve this, I planned to hold webinars, a talk session and tutorials among willing students.
About the Millennium Fellow
Eunice Oyiza Samuel is an intelligent, young and vibrant 300level English language student at the University of Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria. She was birthed in one of the North-central zones of Nigeria - Kogi State.
Right from childhood till present, Eunice has always had an intense desire to propagate the need for quality education among members of her community, regardless of one's social strata. She is also an advocate of gender equality. When she's not reading, working or attending leactures and seminars, she's mostly seen schooling men and women alike on the importance of quality education and gender equality.
This passion has led to her volunteering to be a member of some NGOs that promotes quality education for all and gender equality. Here, she fully maximizes her skills to create impact. She is currently a Fellow at the Millennium Campus Network, she hopes to further promote the SDG 4 through her WeLearn initiative project.
