Hello readers, welcome to Friday’s edition of our Rebrand Nigeria Ambassadors Series!
As the weekend approaches, we want to leave you pondering upon this magnificent gentle man who is energetic and fierce about bringing change in Nigeria.
Today, we present to you our Rebrand Nigeria Ambassador, Bright Jaja, a social entrepreneur, branding expert, filmmaker, motivational speaker and youth leader with a staunch belief in the abilities and chances of Africa.
Bright began his journey in 2012 when he established an NGO called Redance Africa. This NGO later became a strong movement resounding towards inspiring young people, enabling them develop whatever skills they have with pride and dignity.
In 2013, during the ‘Bring Back Our Girls’ Movement following the abduction of the Chibok girls, Jaja played a major role in drawing the world’s attention to Nigeria by mobilizing over 6,000 children across 50 schools in FCT Abuja to dance for peace at the National Stadium.
He was the youngest speaker at the first TEDx in Abuja where he shared platform with his Royal Highness the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.
In 2014, he became one of the youngest national winners of Naija Diamonds, a project by Diamond Bank and Ebony Life TV to celebrate heroes in Nigeria.
In 2017, Bright established iCreate Africa, a hub for skill excellence and development in a bid to raise the profile and recognition of skilled professionals by rebranding and projecting the value of vocational skills in the mainstream. However, he said that iCreate Africa is empowering young people with necessary skills required to solve problems while preparing the next generation for the 21st century skills.
Bright is among the Forbes Africa 30 under 30 lists for 2019.
