Dear friends, supporters, and the incredible Epe Division community,
I am overwhelmed with gratitude as I humbly acknowledge the prestigious Youth Influencer of the Year award from the Epe Division Community Annual Awards (EDCAA), organized by the Concerned Nationbuilder Initiative (CNI). This recognition goes beyond a personal achievement; it is a celebration of the remarkable journey that we have embarked on together.
From the early days of curiosity planted in the classroom to the dynamic world of tertiary education, my path has been shaped by the seeds of passion sown in extracurricular activities. It began with school plays and clubs, enriching my academic experience and fostering a flame for community engagement.
As I transitioned into the tertiary landscape, my involvement expanded beyond the classroom, revealing the profound impact of extracurricular activities on character and resilience. Becoming a teacher, I recognized the transformative potential that extends beyond textbooks, evolving into a community growth enthusiast.
Unexpectedly, my journey led me into the realm of journalism—an accidental journalist reporting on community stories. In each interview and every written piece, I found a powerful medium to amplify voices, share narratives, and inspire change. This award is a testament to the mosaic of experiences that shape influence and the belief that it is not confined to one path.
With heartfelt thanks,
Mr. Kaka Babatunde,
