32 young minds radically reshaping Africa: BIRTHDAY EDITION

Seriously, the one word that best describes the experience of sharing the experiences of the young titans radically reshaping Africa is ‘AMAZING!’
Even more amazing is the fact that one of the 32 is actually celebrating her birthday today!
Before I reveal her name, I would like to tell you a few things about her:
First was an adventurous & exceptionally illustrious secondary school education at Our Lady Of Lourdes College Mankon, Bamenda , Cameroon, Next She pursued a Law degree from the University of Buea, Cameroon after which She got into the International Relations Institute of Cameroon to study regional integration and management of community institutions and finished top of her class in the entrance examination. Then She got a full  scholarship from the African Union to do her masters in Governance & regional integration at the Pan African University Institute of governance, Humanities and Social Sciences; an initiative of the African Union commission.
Worthy of note is the fact that that She is one of the two Cameroonian females to win the scholarship and hers is the pioneer set.
More inspiring is her love for human rights, and her emergence as one of Africa’s most prolific experts in conflict management, human rights, good governance and above all gender issues
Pls give it up for:
Nina Forgwe!

On a personal note, Nina is an embodiment of talents and virtues. I classify her voice as refreshing and her eyes sparkle like diamonds in the sky. She read the news at the DESPLAY MEDIA GROUP with so much grace & eloquence that we all started wondering whether she actually works at CNN!
Her beauty & elegance, brains & quest for furtherance make her a 360 degree leader. That’s why I pray for her:
NINA
You’ll be first,
& every day of this month, you’ll feast.
Your health & wealth will not be lost,
& millions will be your least.
Kings will be your guest,
& on cable, you’ll be the gist.
Your ascension to the top’ll be fast,
& you’ll knock down your enemies with your fist.
ALL THESE & MORE
AS YOU ADD A BRAND NEW YEAR
Happy birthday NINA!
