Zuriel Oduwole Interviews More World Leaders

How does one make the case for the education of Africa’s but more importantly, the Nigerian Girl Child today – except to show the result of what such a step can do in a girls life.

In this day and age when the world’s attention is focused on more than 200 girls kidnapped from Northern Nigeria while getting an education, the best way to convince those who oppose their education in the first place, is to show a Girl, who because she is educated and is still being educated, is taking on the world – literarily.

11 year old Zuriel Oduwole, who has now interviewed and met 1 in 6 of Africa 54 Presidents and Prime Ministers, former Presidents like Jerry Rawlings of Ghana, business leaders like Aliko Dangote, and global civil rights icon Jesse Jackson, has now added 2 more world leaders to her very impressive list.

She has now met with the Prime Minister of the Caribbean country of St Vincent & The Grenadines – H.E. The Honorable Ralph Gonsalves, as well as the Prime Minister of the Caribbean country of St Kitts & Nevis, H.E. The Right Honorable Dr. Denzil Douglas.

uncil A few months ago, she met with and interviewed the only female Prime Minister in the Caribbean region; H.E. The Most Honorable Portia Simpson Miller of Jamaica.

Aside of the issues of Girls Education in their countries, other subjects she talked about with these leaders include their relationship with the African continent, and how their economies are developing in the technology and digital age.

Zuriel Oduwole’s goals are to inspire the African Girl Child now through her Dream Up, Speak Up, Stand Up program and become a Robotics Engineer, but when she becomes older, she would like to become President herself.

Without education, these goals would be a very, very daunting journey. Were the Chibok school girls so wrong to get an education? Were they so wrong to have dreams?
