It is rare to see top executives & leaders of industries create ample time to spend with the younger generation, giving them an opportunity to ask throbbing questions & glean from their wealth of knowledge & experience, that’s why we celebrate one of such rare people, Mr Hakeem Ogunniran, MD/CEO UACN Property Development Company PLC for making out time for the Change Champions on S.M.I.L.E’s Young Leaders Mentoring Program.

The benefits of pursuing one’s passion cannot be overemphasized. It brings fun & fulfillment into work & life and that’s why Mrs. Aderonke Akinola- Akinwole, Founder Community Advancement and Youth Empowerment Network worked the Change Champions through a personality assessment test for choosing the right career while Mr. Omoo Anetekhai, Founder, Cistern Communications, shared his story regarding why he did not give up his passion as a compere inspite of being a lawyer.

An amazing opportunity to learn from the success stories of some of our Youth in Business as well as from our partners Head Designer, Motlog House, Ms Motunde Hamid, CEO Moyin Daves Concept, Mrs Moyin Daves and Founder TIMBA Entrepreneur Foundation, Ms Abiola Omojesu during the panel session on Business Enterprise Development.

It was an integration of high impact learning, celebration, fun & reliving fond memories @ the Reunion as the Champions Champions displayed their talents with many walking away with amazing gifts. One of the major highlights of the day was the crowning of the maiden Master & Miss S.M.I.L.E, a beauty & impact pageant. Both of them received prizes & a year tuition scholarship in any public tertiary institution in Nigeria.

We are indeed very grateful to our partner – Men of Purpose, Journey to Self Discovery, USA for sponsoring this year’s reunion & S.M.I.L.E’s One Year Leadership & Mentoring Program Alumni for supporting the event. Special thanks to our MCs, Emmanuella & Success & the panel of judges, Mr Jamie Pajoel, Dr Linda Pajoel & Mr. Omoo Anetekhai. We also specially appreciate all our partners & friends for making time out to attend the Reunion.
