Good morning beautiful people. I had the incredible privilege of making a dream come true yesterday. I launched my mentoring programme for girls at Oakwood Park Hotel in Lagos. And what a glorious day it was. I looked around the room and seated was the most incredible group of young girls, some lawyers, bankers, doctors, bloggers, writers, content developers, artists, budding entrepreneurs and some still studying. With what I saw in that room yesterday, I am convinced that the future is bright and our girls are going to play a significant role in our development and growth as a nation, we just need to harness and nurture our girls. We also had the most incredible set of guest speakers share with our girls too. #YourDreamMomentsWithMo #ThePowerSeries #beautifulday #mentoring #learning #sharing #makingdreamscometrue #incrediblegirls
