CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA

In August 2010, I was selected alongside thrity women and four men to attend a training for transformatio in Cape Town, it was a very competitive programme and I was so happy when I received the notification because I was recommended by the Founder of Visthar Institute for Peace and Development. Therefore, it was all free for me, I will be on scholarship throughout the one year programme.

Unfortunately, these days many Nigerians are facing lots of challenges before they are granted visas to South Africa, but Jensine Larsen, teh founder of Worldpulse and the organiser of the training Ms Ntombi did all their bests to ensure that I was granted visa, the High Commission of South Africa in Nigeria was not cooperative at all, they did al in their power to frustrate my efforts. But the organisers wrote petitions and supported me all the way, suddenly the consulate called me to come and write about myself that makes these people rant and rant about me, and I told them that I am one of the Voices of our Future, he said come for your visa now! Make it snappy.

Please, do all you can to promote Voices of Our Future, it is working!

I have missed some weeks out of the training but I promise to share with you all here.....lots adn lots of whales and beautiful animals are with me here and they blow kisses to you all.
