Am Back!

Hello everyone! It’s so good to be back. I apologize for not updating this space earlier, there has been a lot going on in my professional life.

First, the Illegal Migration Awareness Project (IMAP) talent hunt and youth concert which held on 26th January at the Aquatic water parks, Ikeja Lagos required my attention in its planning and execution stages.

With Blessing Ashi, During the Campaign.

With some of the students who participated in the events of the day.

I am glad to inform you that it was a huge success as young talented Nigerian youths- in and out of school got a chance to showcase their talents. Some popular figures from the Nigerian movie and music industry like Charlse Okafor, Benedict Johnson and MI were in attendance to thrill their fans.

I have just become a facilitator for "You And I Teach Each Other (UNITE)," a community based program aimed at bridging the gap between the criminal justice system, the youths and nature. This program enables me bring the knowledge I acquired from my basic Alternatives to Violence Project (AVP) facilitators training into more practice.

We have sessions every Wednesday at the Ogudu Secondary School in Ojota and once every month at the Adele Adeniji Police station located on the Lagos Island. Other facilitators include Erica Licht and Onyiye Oyemobi.

I had to make necessary arrangements to ensure the success of my first public lecture on Teen pregnancy, Illiteracy and education based inequality and school drop-out among the teenage women living in the Ajegunle area of Lagos.

The lecture tagged: Women; the Future! Held on the 1st of March at the Anglican Church premises in Ajegunle.

Lastly, it gladdens my heart to share this good news with you. I have recently been accepted into the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative for the 2013 - 2014 sessions! And because of my keen interest in contributing to a society where all are equal, I will be working on projects promoting civil liberties.

Not to worry, I will be posting articles about my work as things unfold.

Watch this space!
