COVID-19: Oluwayomi Zeblon Honoured By US Mission For Providing Virtual Sessions by Great100000: 9:58am On May 22
The United States Mission to the African Union has recognized the effort of a Nigerian man, Oluwayomi Zeblon, for helping his peers during coronavirus pandemic.

When the #COVID19 pandemic upended Oluwayomi Zeblon’s life in Lagos, Nigeria, he noticed a trend: young leaders from across the country were turning more and more to social development and looking for ways that they could improve their communities. A student at Lagos State University, Oluwayomi provided virtual sessions for his peers to equip them with the motivation to make a change in their communities. For Oluwayomi, an inspiring leader is interested in building others up, in highlighting their strengths and in helping them to overcome their weaknesses.

When the COVID-19 pandemic upended Oluwayomi Zeblon’s life in Lagos, Nigeria, he noticed a trend: young leaders from across the country were turning more and more to social development and looking for ways that they could improve their communities.

“The youth are enthusiastic about development,” says Oluwayomi, a student at Lagos State University. “They just don’t all know how to go about it, how to get started.”

To address this, Oluwayomi decided in March to organize a YALILearns session on the YALI Network Online Course Creating and Maintaining Social Enterprises.

Oluwayomi says the course, which covers strategic planning, partnerships and advocacy, was instrumental in giving participants a sense of the broader development community and of the role of young leaders in the space.

“I noticed a lot of youth called to action during the pandemic were lacking the skills needed to implement their projects,” Oluwayomi says.

Key to holding a successful session, Oluwayomi explains, is focusing on a topic of interest to attendees.

“Especially in virtual sessions, the audience needs to be passionate about the topic; they need to be driven.”

For Oluwayomi, his passions lie in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, both in sharing them with others and in working toward them himself.

“I don’t just want to educate my peers about these goals, but I also want to help them create the innovations to achieve them,” Oluwayomi says.

To others interested in development, Oluwayomi recommends “trusting the right people and never forgetting your objective.”

“In a perfect world, people are confident in their skills and in their environment,” Oluwayomi says. “They aren’t afraid to share their ideas.”

With his virtual session, Oluwayomi believes that he equipped his peers, if not with the tools, then with the motivation to make a change in their communities.

“I hope my YALILearns session motivated participants to be innovative, to broaden their thinking and to better understand the problems in their society.”

For Oluwayomi, an inspiring leader is interested in building others up, in highlighting their strengths and in helping them to overcome their weaknesses.

I still maintain we have the potential of driving positive change in this nation but we don't just have the leaders to see this through, hence we are stagnated as a natiion.

Yes but that requires a radical approach, African approach. If not not that dream of positive change remains a dream and subsequently a mirage.

What that young man did is abstract to a very good number of Nigerian youths, most of which you'll find on this platform.

The ones here prefer gossip issues and insulting their governments.

Before opening the thread, I already knew it will be either an Igbo or Yoruba!!

This country would have been a great and successful entity without the Hausa, I'm not trying to promote Tribalism here, But Hausa are dragging Nigeria backward everyday,

Just take a look at Countries dominated by Hausas/Fulani like Chad and Niger, They are all also poor and rubbish countries!!!

Nigeria will never work, Maybe if we opt for Regional system of government, Then it will probably work then

Let every region control their resources and develop their region with Their income!!

Congratulations Son of the Soil

Stale, if the Igbos attack now you will accuse them of chest beating, why not allow sleeping dogs to lie, allow Nigerians to celebrate this young man recognised abroad. You chose a moniker Chizzy while spewing anti Igbo rhetoric from thread to thread angry
