How AUN Students Celebrated International Women's Day

AUN students celebrated this year's International Women's Day by organizing a motivational talk before an audience that had over 50 girls from Secondary Schools in the neighborhood in attendance. 

The 'You are Enough' seminar was held on March 7, 2020, for a largely female audience and was facilitated by AUN Women Leadership Council, Great Dawn Organization, Thinking Cap Literacy Initiative, and Pinkitude Place.

Fourth Year Law Student and Executive Director of Great Dawn Organization, Izuchukwu Izuchukwu, said the motivation for organizing the event was the need to double the effort in closing the gender inequality gap. 

The female Secondary School students in the audience came from AUN Academy, Sanda Girls Secondary School, Government Girls Secondary School, and Fat-Hurrahman Islamic Academy.

Fourth Year Law major and CEO of Thinking Cap Literacy Initiative, Christine Vihishima, spoke on the topic: Living your best life. She said material things do not necessarily guarantee the best life and stressed the importance of living a purposeful life.

Fourth-year Management & Entrepreneurship major and President of Women Leadership Council, Sotonye Wariso, stressed the importance of self-perception and self-dignity 

CEO of Pinkitude Place, Odunusi Emmanuel Oluwaseyi, spoke on Relationship. He told the young girls that building the right relationship starts with the kind of ideas that they communicate.

"When you begin to have a certain perspective of whom you are going to be, you will begin to think in that direction."
