My name is Oyin, a graduate of Estate Management and Valuation from Yaba College of Technology and a Digital Marketing Practitioner. As you would notice, I am a product of the polytechnic and despite graduating with very good grades (I was the best graduating student in my set), the fear was there. I thought that I had limited access to opportunities and almost resigned to fate. I graduated April, 2015 and tried my hands on so many things while awaiting service. In the course of waiting, I was sent a link by my cousin to register for the LEAP Africa School2work Programme.

“I filled the online form without so much expectation because I thought preference will be given to the university guys. But I was wrong.”

I was given a pass to join what turned out to be a large gathering of top minds and I loved every minute of it. I learnt a lot, that I could be all I wanted to be and my confidence was boosted by sessions led by different wonderful people. I must also mention that the food was good.

After the 2-weeks programme, I went on Linkedin, connected with CEOs and requested for internship opportunities, yeah, I had that much confidence. I was also empowered to make a lasting statement everywhere I find myself; this has helped me everywhere I found myself after. I led people way older than me to plan and execute brilliant projects during NYSC and even after.

As a digital marketer, I have been able to create a niche for myself with the values gotten from the LEAP Africa programme, I have been trusted to mentor people in the field and there have been success stories. Every day, I look for ways to make my community better by giving all I can to make it so. In the course of the program, I came to the realization that I am an asset and that has been my tagline since then.

Thanks to LEAP Africa, I can be all I set out to be. I have no limits.
