RNYF 6 (ABIA SESSION)
Nwosu Okechukwu - College of Natural and Applied Science, Michael Okapara University of Agriculture, Umudike.
My journey to becoming an entrepreneur started in 2009 when I attended the Benin Session of the Annual Rise National Youth Forum where I met with the Founder of Rise Networks.
Having communicated and noticed some outstanding qualities in the young leader, I was inspired by her testimony and decided to focus on my dreams and like they say…. THE REST IS HISTORY.
Nosa Solomon Ehigiamusoe (Edo State) – CEO, Final Lap Events
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.

Ganiya Aminat Olajuwon - Biology Department, 400 Level
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.
