32 young minds radically reshaping Africa: CHRISTIANA SAMUEL

1-in-3 sub-Saharan Africans have never been to school talk less of knowing how to write their own name. This is in stark contrast to the U.S literacy rate which sits impressively at 99%. To understand just how devastating ignorance can be, just take a look at the continuous unrest and daily loss of human lives in the north-eastern part of Nigeria; it's not nuclear physics, it's a simple fact that uneducated youths are easily misdirected politically and are the most violent.

As I opined yesterday, all indicators point to the fact that Africa's future needs a fresh perspective and her youths with passion & purpose are the best positioned to secure her future. Africa is at a critical moment in history and it gladdens my heart that hope is still alive and help is on the way. This is because certain patriotic, ambitious & committed youths are taking giant strides to knock ignorance into oblivion in a bid to deliver the Nigeria & the Africa of our dreams.

Today, I present to you another youth radically reshaping Africa. A beautiful, dutiful, wonderful lady with a bright smile and a cheerful spirit. Christiana Samuel, take it away!
