This is how Stand with a Girl (SWAG) Initiative virtual space has helped me. My name is Favour-mfon Edem, I am thirteen years old and I attended the SWAG Initiative Virtual Space program on an invitation by my Dad last year. The founder of the SWAG Initiative was Miss Margaret Bolaji. We were taught some many capacity building program on topics such as Passion and Purpose, Self-Esteem, Advocacy, Public Speaking, Emotional Intelligence, Communication Skills etc. This program has really improved my emotional reasoning with other people, it made me interested in being myself, an advocate of good and personal development and also a leader. Furthermore, it has drive me towards my passion and purpose in life through the help of all the facilitators and my parents. In conclusion, Self-esteem was my best topic because it really impacted me greatly. I love the SWAG Initiative team, that’s why I encourage them to continue grooming and impacting teenagers and young girls the right way.
By contributing to the SWAG Initiative you ensure that girls are not denied an education because of their inability to afford it.
