Hope your weekend is going great?
So we got a call from the young brilliant Chuks Emmanuel Enemchukwu who is a Nigerian but living in Portland, Oregon State, USA. We listened in awe as he narrated his experiences, shared some innovative ideas and expressed his gratitude towards Opportunity Desk for the opportunities he has gotten and the many more he is expecting. We could not wait to share this with you. There is more to Chuks Emmanuel and at opportunitydesk.org, we have our eyes on him - bringing you more stories in the future.
Read below the message we received from Portland!
I have been a member of this group for about a year, and during this period, Opportunity Desk has been of great importance in my personal and entrepreneurial journey.
In January 2013, my group applied and got accepted to become a part of the Clinton Global Initiative University. We also applied for the Rolex grant competition, and we made it through the first stage of the screening process. Opportunity Desk made information about all these opportunities we took advantage of available. Access to opportunities is one of the biggest obstacles faced by many young change-makers today.
Opportunity Desk has gone a long way to bridge this gap, and I beseech all passionate young people to join this group. No other group I have seen provides opportunities that are tailored to address the needs of young change-makers like Opportunity Desk does. Big shout out to Ms. Grace for shouldering such a noble and daunting responsibility.
All the very best Chuks and thanks for writing us! We hope to hear more about your future accomplishments.
