I am passionate about
ActionsI am the founder of a fast growing book club, ‘Outliers Lagos’
(“Outliers”). The club is focused on self awareness and networking with
the primary objective of connecting young professionals through thoughtful
conversations centred on the knowledge found in select books and
documentaries. Club members are encouraged to apply what they've learned to
their daily lives. We focus on creating an environment that ensures knowledge
sharing, ideation and nurtured partnerships amongst the participants.
We have over 50 active participants. Thus far we have interacted with over
300 young adults and children in a mentorship, career talk and orphanage
Under the Outliers Lagos umbrella and Standard Chartered ‘here for good’
employee volunteering campaign, I engage with orphanages and schools to
organise mentorship and motivational talks for students. I also volunteer
with a religious organisation with the objective to propel students to be
“Rock Stars with Integrity” within their community.
Outliers Lagos is now in its third year and the current President is a 26
year old Nigerian woman. We have built Outliers on commitment to use dynamic
social platforms to create awareness among a new generation of future
leaders. It is growing at a remarkable pace and its potential of influence
especially on the young African generation, is unlimited.
