I recently read an interesting article on CNBC, titled “No bank would fund this African mobile start-up — and then its founder became a billionaire”. It was about Sudan-born and Egypt-raised billionaire Mo Ibrahim. He is a phenomenal businessman and a world-renowned philanthropic.
If you read my previous post, you must have noticed that I recently got appointed to be a Global Schools Ambassador by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Youth Initiative.
Global Schools Ambassadors coordinate local efforts to empower schools and teachers to educate children on the SDGs and serve as official spokespersons for the Global Schools Program.
Never EVER underestimate the power of dreaming big. You may be going hungry right now, sacrificing a lot to be a better person tomorrow and I just want to assure you that it’s not in vain.
A host of exciting stuff has happened in my life over the past six months, and I’ll highlight the BEST five and the lessons I got from them. Be inspired!
1. BBC Komla Dumor Award 2018 shortlisting
