Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I have worked alone, and also with a team of Social Media Strategists to develop mobile Applications for android, and manage social media communication channels for corporate brands in Wellness and Entertainment sectors, as well as for a Personal brands.
As a student, I was actively involved in leadership activities inside of campus. I was a School leader – Chaplain, and also departmental Financial Secretary for Physics Association – during which period my team and I discovered the absence of a proper channel for communication. To resolve that, we installed a departmental notice board, for information dissemination.
During my National Youth Service Year, I was an active volunteer in several community service outreaches and globally-related projects. Some of them are:
- MDGs Awareness Campaigns: I facilitated several trainings with the Millennium Development Goals (Now known as the SDGs or Global Goals) Lagos Chapter, to create awareness of the goals amongst youngsters in public secondary schools.
- The ‘Slum to School’ project by Otto Orondaam, which is aimed at providing educational support for children living in the slums of Lagos.
- ‘Inspire HER’ (a personal project aimed at motivating females to venture in; and excel in challenging businesses or career paths – particularly in Engineering and Technology).
- IKEDC Project: A Customer Service Outreach (CSO) project by Sahara Group for Ikeja Distribution Company (IKEDC), aimed at educating the Ikeja community on diabetes and hepatitis, as well as the importance of daily healthy practices.
My enthusiastic activities as a volunteer and in the web/digital industry, has served me well in nurturing my leadership and community management skills, as I have recently developed a strategy that will improve community engagement with young people by over 200 percent. This I plan to deploy into this project.
