FIRST LEAD PARTICIPANTS GETS ADMISSION INTO UNLEASHLAB 2018 IN SINGAPORE ON PARTIAL SCHOLARSHIP

Published by Lead on

Omolabake served and worked for ten months in LTI as a volunteer, office manager and participant. While working she showed excellent communication and coordination skills, I am particularly thrilled by the willingness to go extra miles to acquire knowledge in her area of interest (GENDER EQUALITY). As a participant and office manager, Omolabake is always ready to lend helping hands to her teammates and contributes during thought storming sessions and meetings. After her training at LTI this is what she said:

“Before I came in contact with L.E.A.D, I thought I was good, but so far in the course of the training, I have been drilled, catalyzed and more informed. I have undergone training in project management, idea generation, solution concepts and problem analysis. These trainings have helped me in executing projects and also conceptualizing sustainable solutions to salient issues affecting the society.   The training has helped in sharpening my mindset on agriculture, spurred me to read more. With this I have been able to envision a community of highly esteemetrailblazers that are free from sexual harassment, I am hereby on a mission to provide a friendly environment that will enable teenage girls maximize their potentials through training, orientation and mentorship. In the midst of my passion, I see a ray of hope. Globally and even in Nigeria,  I conceived of a project code-named “MEMO” -an acronym for Mentorship, Education, Monitoring, Orientation. I see women who are effectively leading in their spaces. I have been encouraged not only to be like them, but with a strong conviction, that I can influence the girl child in their thousands to become the movers and shakers of our society and yet be responsible women”

She shared her idea with Unleashlab 2018 a worldwide keenly contested platforms for SDG Talent and was among the 1000 youth leaders selected to share their dreams and make their ideas known to the whole world. Omolabake has been offered partial scholarship to attend this event but needs financial support in the tune of USD 2000 flight, visa, and travel insurance
