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
