Smart Solutions-Aminu: Zobo Drink
Over the past 6 weeks I have taken part in a Professional Development Program, Mandela Washington Fellowship by the United States Government @Notre Dame University, and I have gotten to meet 24 fabulous young people from 20 Countries in Africa whom I am proud to have meet, because they all are doing something for Africa and offering smart solutions to problems and opportunities in their countries, before I arrived for the program I got a chance to view their profiles and I was intimidated! These guys looked so brilliant I didn’t think I could share a room with them, until I met them, one by one…Gosh they were the funniest most amazing young Africans I have ever met.
I’d like to share My personal experience with each of them and of course their amazing Initiative in solutions for Africa; Smart Solutions for Africa!
Allow me to share a story for each of them along with their smart solution.
