Edidiong Umoh receives Scholarship to attend Women Deliver 2016 Conference in Denmark

We are pleased to hear from Edidiong Umoh from Nigeria on her selection for a FULL Scholarship to attend the Women Deliver 2016 Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. The scholarships are awarded to incredible youth advocates, under the age of 30, who are working to advance the health, rights, and well-being of girls and women in their community and around the world.

Edidiong now has the chance to serve as a youth representative at the conference and connect with the wide range of policymakers, donors, activists, and journalists in attendance. Read her statement below:

"I am so grateful to the Opportunity Desk administration, I have applied for a lot of the opportunities I see here, and found it so discouraging at some point. Today, I am so glad that I am successful and that I didn't give up. Thanks to OD, I love you so much.

If you are out there, passionate about something, then don't quit trying, take advantage of these great opportunities, and keep trying. You will be glad you didn't quit" - Edidiong Umoh

We are so excited for you, and wish you the best!
