Welcome to another brand new week!
Yesterday was Father’s Day and you bet it was awesome. Congratulations again to all the wonderful Dad’s out there.
I’m so excited about this week, especially about today.
You will recall that a few months ago, I was promoting the Queens Young Leaders Award on this blog while encouraging young Nigerians who are partaking in worthy leadership and charity causes in their communities to register. I’m so glad that four young Nigerian leaders were selected to receive this award. They are Isaiah Owolabi of HACEY Health Initiative; Kelvin Ogholi of UNFIRE; Nkechikwu Azinge of The Sickle Cell Aid Foundation and Oladipupo Ajiroba of The Environmental Advocacy and Management Initiative.
So today, I will be attending the award ceremony with my hubby at the Buckingham Palace on a special invitation from the Queen! Now you know why I’m excited.
These four Nigerians are among 60 inspirational young people aged 18-29 across the Commonwealth who will receive their award from Her Majesty the Queen later today and will be rewarded with a bespoke package of mentoring, training and networking, which will help them realize their full potential. With this they can go on to inspire other young people to help shape the future of the Commonwealth.
I promise to bring you more gist and photos from the event later.

Have a fab week everyone!
