Celebrity blogger and initiator of the #iratherbeselfmade project, Linda Ikeji has begun her statewide secondary school tour aimed at sensitizing young females on the core values bothering on self esteem, integrity and self dependence.
The tour which will reach over 25 schools in its first phase will see Linda Ikeji share her story with over 500,000 secondary school students across Lagos state; the many obstacles and challenges faced on her journey to becoming #SelfMade.
Speaking on the timing and relevance of the project, Linda Ikeji reiterated, “Catching our girls young is key to me! I want to tell them to start young, believe in themselves, work hard and surround themselves with like minds, people who are ambitious and believe in their vision”.
Beginning with Yinkem Schools and Bosworth College both in Mafoloku and also Fountain Heights in Surulere as first leg of the tour on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th January, Linda Ikeji will spend the first quarter of 2017 inspiring and challenging young people to be the best they can be without resting on their oars to get to the next phase in their life but rather to channel their inner strength and positive mind to achieve success.
