WHY IS IGNITE HELPFUL FOR YOUR CAREER EDUCATION?
IGNITE has motivated me greatly. Being a girl, and able to be connected to the successful women anytime we have IGNITE functions. I shared in their personal stories. I equally appreciate Hajia (Mrs.) Binta Hamisu Tafashiya, a Senior lecturer of mathematics. Her presentation in one of IGNITE gathering made me to have love for Mathematics, and I have started developing choice of career in Mathematic.
HOW HAS IGNITE HELPED YOU GAIN CONFIDENCE IN YOUR YOURSELF
I started to develop confidencewhen I seek for counseling with the IGNITE coordinator in my school, Miss Hafsat Dambo, and she told me to keep working hard, that I can make it. And I started to believe in myself. When I went for a competition and qualified for the next round of Olympiad Junior Science I felt happier, perhaps IGNITE does great in my life.
WHAT ELSE CAN YOU SHARE ABOUT IGNITE TO HELP OTHERS UNDERSTAND WHY THE PROGRAM WORKS FOR GIRLS?
I will like to tell the girls in community, and most importantly the girls in my school and IGNITE club that with good knowledge of science and technology we can do better in our future careers
