MTN Foundation, others task youths on winning strategy
Youths have been charged to be pragmatic in their approach toward addressing issues they might be dealing with in their quest to create and sustain a winning idea for empowerment and development.
In dealing with these challenges, youths have been counselled to ‘think like there is no box’ and show greater ingenuity to counter the challenges.
These steps, the Senior Special Adviser to the Abia State government on Public Communication, Sam Hart and the Managing Director of SLOT, Nnamdi Ezegbo, at the launch of the MTN Foundation Scholars Alumni and Conference held in Owerri, Imo state, would help youths refocus their lives with a view to making headway in carrier development.
The conference, billed as an annual event, will bring together the graduate beneficiaries of the MTN Foundation Scholarship schemes: Scholarship for the Science and Technology students (STSS) and Scholarship Scheme for the Blind Students (SSBS).
Rather than sitting back and sulking about the current economic challenges, Hart, who is also the promoter of the ‘Made in Aba’ initiative said the youths, “should not only think outside the box, but should think like there is no box. Challenges will come, failure will come but they are necessities to succeed.
You need to be resilient to sustain a winning idea and you must believe in yourself.”
