We are very pleased to hear from Jacqui Joseph about her selection for the Global Change Leaders Program. Information about the Coady Institute program was posted on Opportunity Desk For You Facebook Group, and Jacqui learnt about it from there. It is really amazing that she took advantage of this opportunity and got selected. It is even more exciting that she is sharing her experience with us.

I have been selected as a 2012 Global Change Leaders participant. The Global Change Leaders program was posted on Opportunity Desk as the Global South Program sponsored by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). Through a tough process of selection which saw applications sent from many developing countries, I was greatly privileged to be chosen as a candidate to this program. Amongst the many opportunities posted on OpportunityDesk.org, I learnt about the Global Change Leaders through, in which I feel I owe credit to Opportunity Desk. I would like to encourage you all to keep track of posts presented on Opportunity Desk as it is a great way to stay informed about the amazing opportunities that you may be a part of. For now I am eager to start the program in two weeks time and will definitely keep you all posted on my progress. By the way the program entails a certificate leadership course for seven (7) weeks in Nova Scotia, Canada.
That is great Jacqui!
We await progress stories. Do keep us in the loop of activities as they unfold.
All the best!
