Dr. Charles Akhimien wins 2013 UNEP World Environment Day Blogging Competition

It is exciting to read another success story from Dr Charles Akhimien, a 24 year old medical doctor from Nigeria. Charles is the winner of this year's World Environment Day Blogging Competition organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the official blogger for World Environment Day 2013 ( This is an amazing feat and we celebrate him.

Read the rest of his message about three other awards and opportunities he received this year since getting in touch with Opportunity Desk!

I represented the UN in Mongolia in June of this year for world environment Day and I have just been named winner of the  UNEP World Environment Day Blogging Competition making me the official blogger for WED 2013. 

Opportunity desk has been of great help to me since August. I have been able to get a veritable source of promising opportunities for young people. Through opportunity desk I have applied for over 7 different opportunities, with 3 being successful.

I was appointed Director General for Health, World Youth Government
I was featured on the YEN Marketplace as a one of their outstanding young people
I got accepted to participate as a Delegate in the Global summit Youth Programme (GSY) in malaysia next month, which will be all-expenses paid.
Thanks again for bringing these great opportunities to us.
