At EmpowermeEOS, our students are not only being equipped with tools and gadgets, such as smartphones, laptops and internet subscription etc, in order to connect them to the rest of the world and break the digital divide, they are also being empowered with a wide array of digital skills and mentorship towards attaining financial independence. Equally, ensuring community development is of high importance to us and this is why our students are being trained to become leaders in their various communities so that after we empower them, they can go ahead and help others, creating a ripple effect. One of the ways they can learn leadership skills is by emulating role models who are already leading lights in the digital/tech world. As often said, the first step in becoming a leader is following. In this post, EmpowermeEOS student, Mercy Akande, talks briefly about one of those role models, Rhett Creighton
