Have you continued any of your Award activities? If so, what:
Yes I have continued in the videography section. Some years ago in my church, I discovered there was an error in the church logo displayed at the plasma TV and I stood up in courage to alert the Media team in their office and they acknowledge it but after few weeks. I was expecting that there should have been a change but yet it seems as if they don't count my words worthy to take action, I picked up my uncle's phone and I searched how to create logo. From there I had the knowledge of graphic design after some months, the church youth organized an empowerment program and I choose graphic design, I was able to grab the basics of design. I later move with the Media team in the church and they got to understand that I'm interested in the media and I started working with the church camera I could say that I didn't enroll for any much training on how to use the camera but with imagination I could film whatever I want to shoot and today I'm perfectly good in videography. I must say a big thanks to Damipro Media and Sholeye Babatunde for standing by me.
