On May 19th 2018, a decision was made to take the youth into our hands and let them know UIU-Dallas is here for them.It is our time to give back to our community and to restructure our next generation of kids and teenagers. The kids are our future and in order to ensure that the kids will follow the right path and make the right decisions.
As Igbo people we celebrate life and give thanks every opportunity we get. Being able to be a part of a community that wants to see you win- is what we Nigerians are accustomed to. This is our opportunity to unify the next generation. To be the change we want to see in our community by leading the example.
You are who you surround yourself with. your immediate network is not only a catalyst to capitalizing on your dreams, but also an opportunity to add value to those around you. Be in the finance sector, tech, medicine, or even being an educator; there is always someone that can help you reach the next level.
We have a strong rich Igbo heritage that has helped shape our world views and our passions. Regardless of how much you already know, there is always an opportunity to become more rooted in your cultural ancestry. There’s power in being prideful of your heritage, and there’s power in getting to express that pride!
