Nigerian Teen Ambassador
We have created a platform that seeks to empower young Nigerians living in the diaspora, providing them with an opportunity to embrace their cultural heritage and nurture their talents while building confidence. Through this initiative, we aim to foster positive growth among young individuals, while also supporting various charities that share in our vision.
To achieve this, we are excited to announce a competition where participants will have the opportunity to showcase their talents and gain recognition as ambassadors for their community in the UK. Beyond the competition, the winners will receive support to take their talents and personal branding to the next level, a £1000 cash prize, mentorship that will provide winners with 12 months of guidance from a seasoned professional who will help them develop their skills, network, and establish themselves in their respective fields.
Furthermore, our winners will receive academic and business support, including a tutor to help them with their studies or other academic pursuits. We understand the importance of personal branding and its role in the success of young individuals. That's why we will provide our winners with training to help them establish a strong personal brand that will enhance their visibility and recognition.
To top it all off, we are pleased to offer the winners a £500 voucher to spend on a new wardrobe. This gesture is intended to help our winners feel confident and empowered as they pursue their dreams.
In summary, we are committed to supporting young Nigerians living in the diaspora by providing them with an opportunity to embrace their cultural heritage, showcase their talents, and establish themselves as ambassadors for their community. Our mentorship program, academic and business support, personal branding training, and wardrobe voucher are all aimed at helping our winners realise their full potential and achieve success.
