Sometimes, i try out things without even knowing what the outcome would be or how far it will push my dreams and aspirations. To think i applied from the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative nonchalantly when my friend @oluwamayowatj asked me to. Crossed all hurdle, got on the fellowship (an initiative of the U.S consulate) and its been one growth process to another.
Thank you @oluwamayowatj, Thank CYFI, Thank you U.S consulate.
Also big shout out to the amazing personalities that took time out to share moments with me and the team @ritadominic @dareydarey @obyezekwesili, Sharman, etc and even those i didnt take pictures with😍❣️ Long live the United States of America. Happy 242nd Independence day. #CYFI#CarringtonFellow#TalkingMo
I enjoyed every moment of today's hangout with the Carrington Youth Fellowship Education Team, most especially our project presentation at Ford Foundation.
I and this amazing guys will be working on a social innovation project in the Educational Sector called "Teaching Edge" to empower and support public secondary school teachers in Lagos State with 21st century skills.
Apart from working together on this project, I enjoyed the diversity in the team and most especially today's hangout.
We shared our weaknesses and strengths. We were also able to identify where we could complement each other and the funniest part is when we started mentioning what we could do outside project management and all. Some could dance, sing, some are athletes.
We also get to know each other on a personal level and background.
One key thing I learned here is; beyond working on a project, there are things that enhances the project. An hangout, party and cheering each others up. This strengthen the team and makes work faster.
Some may not see it as functional but I just confirmed it with these amazing guys.
Again, we all think about the fellowship but it isn't. It is passion first. This guys confirmed it.
Fun facts about them: They speak their truth just like me and they love honest/fierce conversation.
