Favourite memory of the Award:
Helping those less privileged than myself.
Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
My biggest challenge was getting my parents to understand what I was doing because most times it was time consuming and I have to come home quite late and they used to question when I arrived home about what I had been doing.

Tell us the story behind your photo:
Before I registered for the Award I always wanted to help people in my community because the community is one of the undeserved ones,(Makoko) and it's always with the young ones. As an ambassador of my community, I thought of what I could do to add value to the young people's life and help impact their life, so I made up a cluster learning programme and I wasn't charging the kids, where I teach them about mathematics, English and even mentor them because every person on earth deserve a mentor. We should all note something that I always quote "Success is not about certificates you owned or how much money you have in your account, it's all about lives you change and legacies you left when you're gone.
