Career Day: Be the INSPIRATION

The 27th day of March, 2014 presented another opportunity for the Founder and Executive Director of Street to School Initiative -Tosin Taiwo (Olowoyeye Oluwatosin) to discuss with over one hundred students of Mbari Mbayo High School, Yaba, Lagos State, Nigeria. It was their Career Day, and an exciting moment for Tosin to motivate young people by sharing her story of how far she has excelled in her chosen field, especially now that she just returned from the United States of America after a 3 week long International Visitor Leadership Program- IVLP. During this IVLP program, Tosin met with many terrific women leaders across the nation, from Washington D.C to Virginia, to New York to Little Rock, Arkansas, to Denver, Colorado and to San Diego, California. It was such a mind blowing experience!

As a child, Tosin never had a clear picture of what profession to embrace, however she gets inspired whenever she sees photograph of successful women leaders in pages of daily newspaper in Nigeria. Eventually, picking up newspaper to check out for photographs of successful women leaders became an habit. She loves picking up the daily newspaper. This motivates her than any other thing and with great hope she would look forward to a day when she would be featured in the pages of the newspaper as a woman leader!.

Today, Tosin has not just been featured severally in the Nigerian Newspapers, but also in a foreign newspaper, upon her visit to Denver, Colorado. She was featured in the UTSanDiego

She was only 7+years old.
She fell ill 2weeks ago.
Maybe, for lack of hospital in the community.
Maybe, for lack of adequate knowledge.
The parent resolved into spiritual intervention.
It must be a spiritual attack.
Mary couldn't move again.
Yesterday, Mary died in the church.
Where her parent had taken her to.
Today, I crrrriiieeed. Still tear-dropping.
I weep because we just lost a friend .
one of our coolest friends.
I weep for what ignorance could bring.

Last three years, we had a similar case where one of our girls was also 'abandoned' in the church for spiritual healing. She had her legs swollen as a result of the illness. It was a mild fracture, mama assured us. Everything would be fine. Haaa! Fracture? But this is not an hospital. Swiftly, with friends help, we got them moved to a hospital where it was diagnosed that our little friend had kidney problem. She spent more than 4months in the hospital! Today she is alive and in JSS 1.

Sadly, when people resolve to goin…

Thank You.
