Millennium Fellowship Project: Classy Rahmah Writes...
So far, I have been able to impact meaningfully and positively in the society to some extent through what l I love doing most which is writing. I have written several life changing articles to the public. I am working on SDG 4 which is Quality Education.
I have been making awareness on education for all and the education has to be a quality one. In the sense that, Education is not only about Academics, there are some other parts of intelligence that needs to be acquired by all. Example of such is Emotional Intelligence, one having the right knowledge to understand the emotions of himself and also those around him.
Listening to my colleagues in school, understanding their concerns and feelings has helped me to get certain things right and this would help in the journey of having a Quality Educational System in the society as people naturally adores anyone that understands their feelings and is always willing to provide a listening ear. If this is rightly channelled into our educational system both within and outside Nigeria, it will aid and improve better performance of students as a result of the upright behaviour of teachers/lecturers.
Some necessary skills such as, Leadership and Interpersonal skills is greatly needed to be acquired by any students that is aware of what the outside world/labor market is made up of. A graduate is going to be dealing with more complex situations during practice and as such, he/she need more sophisticated tools to be able to perform excellently. This, has been one of my sensitization so far.
Furthermore, I have been constantly laying emphasis on the great need for hands on experience or practicals to be included in our Educational Curriculum. This would undoubtedly reduce the rate of unemployment cases in the society taking Nigeria as a Case Study. Quality Education should be about what can be done with one's hand and not just abstract knowledge.
