Woow, it’s time for us to stop the blame game… After all, everyone is born a leader! That’s going to be our theme for next week’s discussion on The Leadership Talk Show with Amanda Obidike.
We are most grateful to our President, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu for taking the time out to speak to Nigerian youths around the world on that important theme on why youth participation in politics and governance is very important.
To join us next week on the live show is Amanda Obidike, an Emotional Intelligence and Leadership Behavior Expert from the Santa Clara University, USA.
As a STEM certified professional by the Open University, United Kingdom, Amanda founded the Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Innovation Makers of Africa (STEMi Makers Africa) where she created sustainable development projects in over 75 under-served communities across 17 Sub-Saharan countries aimed at preparing the next generation of innovators with technology emerging tools, real-world problem-solving skills they need to excel in lucrative fields and become more experienced for Africa’s workforce by 2030.
Amanda Obidike is also the Founding Curator of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Shapers, Ozubulu Hub where she leads dialogues and engages communities on youth and social development.
Forbes Science marked her as a Nigerian who is changing the culture fabric for young girls to embrace Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. As a global change maker, Amanda is also an expert in Capacity building, Data Science, Youth Development and a reforms advocate of the education system.
That’s not all, Amanda Obidike is a Mentor in Cherie Blair Foundation, the 1 million Women in Technology, Global Thinkers Forum for Women, where she lends her voice, knowledge and serves as a role model to millions of young girls in Africa. She sits on the Board of Directors of the Global Youth Initiative and an Ambassador of the Global Peace Chain, Nepal.
Our guest, Amanda strongly believes that everyone deserves a chance to live and enjoy the great things of life. No wonder, she had this to say when asked about her motivation for all the great things she does for the African continent..
“I chose to become a trainer and advocate due to the moral decadence and loss of social values in West Africa. I believe that every youth has the right to dream, to actualize their goals and have a better life, irrespective of their backgrounds, economic factors and cultural values.”
That’s exactly what she will be discussing with the host, Remy Chukwunyere, the #JobCreationAddict on The Ugwumba Leadership Talk Show on Wednesday, August 05, 2020 by 12 noon.
