Opportunity comes but once they say,that is why I don’t toil with anyone I come across.Few months ago my mentor, the founder of Young Protege Leadership Foundation,Tobi Michael Akinnike told me about a two weeks internship programme organized by Ola foundation. And he told me to fill the form as soon as possible.
I checked the link he sent to me and as I was filling the form I saw different categories they will be training the interns on.As a debater, i was looking for a platform I could express myself but saw categories like online marketing, fashion,baking, coding,leather works etc so I decided to choose leather works.I submitted the form and some weeks later I was called to be interviewed,I pass the interview and I was chosen to learn how to make slippers and sandals at shoe speed.
During and after the internship programme I have made different kind of slippers and sandals.My page on face book is “Dmf quality”,that is where you can find my works.
This are some of his works.
My profound gratitude goes to MR. Tobi Michael Akinnike,Young Protege Leadership Foundation, Ola foundation,ShoeSpeed Ltd. and the Almighty GOD,for this opportunity. You are not a blessing until others have been bless by you,thank you for being a blessing to me.
EVERY CHAMPION WAS ONCE A LEARNER
Many are ashamed to put the learner sign on their car. They don’t want people to laugh at them. They don’t want to look inferior to people who may see them. Forgetting that everyone was once a learner
Infact, many people you are putting into consideration don’t even know how to drive. They laugh at you because they want to intimidate you
They are afraid you are going ahead of them
Never mind. Amateur status is temporary if you can persist at learning. You will either despise the shame and learn or remain ignorant. Even the greatest athlete, musician, leader or whatever field were once a LEARNER. They are champions today because they persist at learning
Never mind if you have to enrol for a course with people far younger than you in a class. Never mind if you have to buy a book meant for people far below your age. Never mind if you have to get your hands dirty in the process of learning. Never mind even if as a leader your follower needs to put you through something you do not know
Learner status is not something to be ashamed of
It is something to embrace. Learning is continuous be ready to assume the position from time to time on your way to greatness
Keep learning, keep winning
