As someone who liked spending her time helping kids in orphanage homes and hospitals, being a kid herself, no wonder Omotoke Olowo has achieved so much so far, and deserved to be a role model for many people. This inspiring young lady from Nigeria has been named OD Young Person of the Month for June2018. She is also an Ambassador fellow for ROI Africa, an Ashoka Changemaker and 2018 Mandela Washington Fellow. Her first contact with disabled kids made such an emotional impact on her, she ended up founding her own NGO - The Autism Awareness Place, where children with autism feel respected and accepted as a part of society. Her journey includes teaching children of migrant fishermen at the Makoko community the art of reading and writing, training teachers in rural communities on how to facilitate learning for these kids and helping their parents to face all the challenges. Her mission is clear – to lend her voice and strength to the ones society keeps neglecting.

Despite little or no direct support, future young leaders in this country are somehow managing to grab their chance to learn and grow. And he is doing everything he can to empower them, representing their interests. But not theirs only – he travels the world working on social innovation projects. This inspiring young man was selected as a Tony Elumelu Entrepreneur in April this year, in May 2018 he was chosen as a part of 50 outstanding young experts and named a G20-Young Global Changer by Global Solutions Initiative in Germany. And these are just some of his numerous international recognitions. He claims the leaders of his country have failed the youth on several fronts but he is determined to be part of a revolution. His motto might really lead to big changes one day:Work on being and not on having, for with what you are, you will have.
