HOW HAS IGNITE INSPIRED YOU?
Obviously, IGNITE has not only inspired me but has also inspired great loyalty in me. IGNITE has inspired me on how to lead my life with more fulfillment and impact. It has also inspired me on how to live happily with people around me.


WHY IS IGNITE HELPFUL FOR YOUR CAREER EDUCATION?IGNITE has being helpful for me because it has counseled me on what career to choose after my present class of senior secondary school 2 (SSS2). IGNITE has also created an opportunity to spark girls’ excitement about technology careers and inspire them to new possibilities. In my school, Mariamoh Ajiri Memorial Int’l Katsina, and among my classmates, the interest for computer sciences and engineering career is on the increase. All that IGNITE has being doing is for the benefit of everyone and not only for young girl like me but for the male counterparts. All presentations in my school’s IGNITE Club activities drive a notion that we may find it easier when choosing a future career. For one to suggest a career, one has to be successful in knowing who s/he is, ones values and passion. Being with IGNITE, creates opportunity to choosing careers wisely.


HOW HAS IGNITE HELPED YOU AGAIN CONFIDENCE IN YOURSELF?
As a senior student in my school, IGNITE has honoured and strengthened me with good qualities in order to gain more confidence as I prepare for higher institution soon. IGNITE groom us to be leaders of tomorrow. And despite being a female, I am looking forward to be the President of Nigeria.

 

WHAT ELSE CAN YOU SHARE ABOUT IGNITE TO HELP OTHERS UNDERSTAND WHY THE PROGRAM WORKS FOR GIRLS?
The other main thing I want to share about IGNITE is that IGNITE has played a very good role in helping girls. IGNITE enlighten girls whether in rural or urban areas and even worldwide on the importance of education. This aspect is very important. Girls need to know who they are, what they want, what they have, what they can do, and their dreams, to mention but a few. How do you expect a girl to exercise on these things without counselling? Obviously, that can never happen, a girl needs to be counselled and guided rightly. Apart from all listed above; IGNITE also help in exposing girls to different female experts, and understanding about ideas of places. Each time I use the computer to the IGNITE website, I see girls like me, and it gives me joy to experiences girls in other places.

Thank you.
