The RISE Networks event was filled with seasoned speakers who had rich content to share with us. It was a mind blowing and revealing session for me. I realised that Nigeria as a country is blessed with so much resources and it is high time for the youths of this great nation to look beyond oil and embrace other sectors of the economy as the way forward.

Dinipre Chigozie Adimibe - College of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Michael Okapara University of Agriculture, Umudike.
I was privileged to know about RISE when they came to Kaduna in October 2010 for the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM event usually done nationwide. Since that encounter, I was really surprised that here in Nigeria we have such an organization wheeled at impacting the lives of Nigerian Youths through Technology, Education, Management Skills, Motivational Messages and Books, Media e.t.c. I wanted to be a part of the mission and vision so I ensured I got the opportunity to meet with Toyosi and was blessed and I ended up becoming a volunteer rep in Kaduna. I fortunately spearheaded the #BringBackTheBook initiative in NTA KADUNA which touched so many lives here in Kaduna and a great success nationwide.

It is with great delight and humility, that I write my RISE Experience over the last six (6) years of my encounter with the RISE NATIONAL YOUTH FORUM (RNYF) in Lagos and Ogun State.
In September 2009, I was opportune to serve as a volunter for the RNYF in Abeokuta, with that single act since 2009 till date, Rise Group has Instilled in me the spirit of volunteerism within and outside my immediate community. RISE NETWORKS under the able mentorship of Mrs. Toyosi Akerele-Ogunsiji, has been able to alter my MINDSET and as well galvanize my ENERGIES towards hardwork, leadership and the power of synergy.

Nnamdi Kelechi - Imo State University, Owerri.
RNYF is a game changer. In 2010, I had the honour of volunteering for the Akure session. That was a clear beginning of transformation in my life. After my encounter with RNYF, my business grew exponentially, got on several media platforms, got nominated for the Future Awards prize in Agriculture, won the title of Nigeria’s Champion for the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards, and many other significant things. Today, I am proud to be associated with the growth and progress of RISE and will do everything to inspire other young people that I come across.
