This session of BlankPaperz Share it Session was a very exciting one! This was a free knowledge sharing session to teach writers and creatives on how to maximize the powerful potentials of social media and media in general for their good. From a pool of over 30 applicants who applied to attend this share it session within the short frame of time given for application, only 16 participants were selected to attend this share it session on social media.
Since coming to the United States with a leader scholarship awarded by the U.S. Department of State, Mirabelle has spoken on Creative Associates International’s panel in D.C. to discuss the role of Blankpaperz in peacemaking, and has become an Ashoka Robert Bosch Stiftung ChangemakerXchange Dakar Fellow.
Mirabelle Morah, former Director of Operations at CYCWR took a training session at the Youth Council’s mentoring session for young girls. She spoke about storytelling and how it could help them find themselves.
Mirabelle Morah is an amazing 19-year-old who I met at the Young African Leaders Initiative, West Africa, Regional Leadership Center, N2 and she was the only Nigerian teenage participant! Her creativity and ingenuity are one of the first things that you will notice about her. She is currently one of the four Nigerian students representing the country for Study of The United States Institutes (SUSI) 2017 in the United States. So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s meet Mirabelle.
Growing up, I heard a lot of silly and amazing things about the U.S, like “American wonder!” so my first few days in the U.S, I kept my eyes open in case I would see wonder woman, or bat man flying by. Or just in case I would see any bridges fall down because talking apes were fighting on it. Really, I didn’t see anything.
