Nosak Group Celebrates IWD With Mentorship Summit For Female Students

 

Senior secondary students from public schools in Kosofe Local Government Area of Lagos have been tasked to stay focused on their education and career pursuit in order to finish well and become women of value to the society.

The charge was given during a one-day Mentorship Summit organized by Nosak Group to commemorate the International Women’s Day with the theme, “Growing Women, Career and Workplace.”

Pastor (Mrs.) Risi Ogunbor who facilitated the event said the seminar aimed to build the minds of the growing women to stay determined in their academic pursuit to become active change agents in nation-building.

“Every woman is born with a special gift to provide a solution to a need. You have to identify that innate gift in you, ‘download’ it and impact the world with that gift, she said.”

On academic and career excellence, Pastor Ogunbor emphatically called on the students to avoid every form of distraction on their paths. “Excellence is finishing what you have started and doing it in a unique way. This can be achieved when you stay focused on your dream”.

Ogunbor urged the students to always compete for the best and aim to reach the zenith of their careers. She further charged them to choose career paths that meet the social needs of society and to be confident in themselves.

Responding to the gesture, Mrs. Tinuola Idowu, Director, Co-Curricular Unit, Education District 11, Maryland, Lagos applauded the management of Nosak Group for identifying with students from Government Schools in Lagos on the Mentorship  Summit, saying the lessons learned will go a long way to help the girls to become women leaders in their chosen field of study.
