|They thronged in as the gates opened!|
Our society seems to be losing its morals and ethical values. Many times we question what we are doing wrong and try to push the blame to other. Until we take responsibility individually and collectively, the same problems might remain. The overall theme was 'become a better you' with the goal to teach these young ones that we all have a role to play. We all are leaders in our own right and should be the best version of ourselves.
The teachings and activities were based on seven pillars:
|The Pastor overseeing the youth church of FWC - Josh Ochu|
|Leadership teaching - Elizabeth Taylor|
|Leadership teaching - Olugbenga Oyeniyi|
|Trainings in smaller clusters|
|Flash mob, the dances were so cool!|
|Mind blowing poetry!|
There was a fashion show and OMG...it was wow! It was all about them. Nobody cared about height or size, it was a way of saying to everyone to develop self love no matter how we look. Also, we can dress decently but still be fly! Each person brought their own uniqueness to the run way!
|She was super confident and got a present for the most confident one of all the contestants|
We the volunteers were called up too! No prior notice but we had our chance to strut the runway! It was all so cool, amidst cheers and applause.
|Yep, yours truly was not left out of the action!|
Overall I would say it was successful especially as we already have testimonials from some of the participants of a boost in their confidence. We have also heard of some who got the needed motivation to be better by the things they have seen their peers doing and saying.
I am passionate about helping people maximise their potentials and grateful to work with these guys. As I watch them come into their own, I am certain that they are set to do mind blowing things.
