Phone: Fax: Maybe I can help. Personally, I am very interested in women's health rights and I will be attending the Women Deliver conference in May in Copenhagen, Denmark with a group from my high school to pursue my interests. We are the first and only high school group to attend. I would love to learn more about your experience starting your community initiative and business, what inspired you, and how you run your business now.
If you're interested, my class would love to Skype with you, so let me know. My email is I was quite impressed with this message from a sophomore rough equivalent of SS1 in the Nigerian Secondary School context and guessed Quinn was probably 15 or I marveled that starting right from high school secondary school , students are being taught what it takes to become a global leader. The conversation actually took place with me in my office in Ibadan and the students in their school classroom in Brookline.
We utilized technology, Skype, in this instance to bridge the distance and time! To say that I was thoroughly impressed with Quinn and her classmates from Brookline would be an understatement. I have been to a number of global events in my journey as a Social Entrepreneur SOCENT and I have often been struck by the sheer number of young Americans who are out and about doing social good — identifying problems and providing beneficial solutions across the globe in marginalized communities — in far flung places across Africa, Latin America etc.

And so when Quinn happened upon my short TED Talk it resonated with what her teacher had been teaching her class all year. I was amazed at the depth of questions from these Sophomore students. That roughly translates to 1 student teacher ratio give or take a few.
First impressions count. She made it easy for me to respond to her request. Unlike some other messages I receive from some university graduates today which are filled with abbreviations, numerous typos and dis-jointed thought processes. People unable to distinguish between the appropriateness of when and when not to use SMS text language.
I typically shelve such messages because there is nothing to respond to. Use Technology and Information to leap ahead. How are we managing and deploying both to our advantage? They used the internet view the TED Talks and conduct further research on who I was, used Facebook to reach out to me and Skype for the conference call etc. She had read about different Nigerian cultures and class in the book and was wondering if I could affirm whether it was real.
But that notwithstanding I told her a bit of what we have here in Nigeria. Surprisingly, I never got asked this question when I had a Corporate career. The Nigerian mindset of looking for the next money spinner is one that needs to be tamed.
