Mama was saying her prayers,' Jordyn, who was recovering in hospital on Wednesday, told a relative, The three-year-old girl found clinging to her dead mother in freezing floodwaters later told family members that her mother had been saying her prayers. Collette Sulcer, 41, died on Tuesday after she got swept away by strong currents in Beaumont, Texas while trying to carry her daughter Jordyn to safety.' Jordyn told me they were in the yucky water for quite a while,' the relative added.' It's a tragedy that her mama died, but it's a miracle that Jordyn survived.'Sulcer had been trying to flee the floods in her car at about 3.30pm on Tuesday when she became overwhelmed by the flooding roadway. She had pulled into a parking lot along Interstate 10 when her car got stuck. A witness told authorities she saw Sulcer take her daughter out of the car and try to walk to safety when the current from a flooded canal next to the parking lot swept them away. They were found floating about half a mile from her car. Police say the mother fought desperately to keep her child's head out of the water. Officer Carol Riley, a spokeswoman for the Beaumont Police Department, said the mother was found by rescuers floating in the canal with her daughter still clinging to her. She said Sulcer 'absolutely saved the child's life they were in the water for quite some time. The mother did the best she could to keep her child up over the water.' The baby also had a backpack that was helping her float on her back and she was holding on to her mom.' Police and fire rescue divers in a boat spotted the mother and child floating. The first responders got to Sulcer and her daughter just before they went under a trestle. Police said the water was already up to the trestle and they would not have been able to save the girl if they had floated under it. They managed to pull Sulcer's body and the girl, who was suffering from hypothermia, into the boat. The mother was pronounced dead shortly after they reached an ambulance. The child is in stable condition and will be released into the care of family members.

World's biggest foodfight festival in Spain.

The fiesta, held since 1945, was declared a Festival of International Tourist Interest by tourism chiefs in Madrid in 2012. It began at 11am local time, with the start and finish being signalled by the firing of water cannons. Journalists from as far away as India and Korea were covering the event for 90 news organisations. In 2013 the authorities began selling tickets to the event to prevent too many revellers descending on the town. Residents and businesses board up their properties or cover them with huge plastic sheets to prevent damage. In recent years there have been criticisms of the event, saying it is a waste of food and drives up prices. But organisers insist the tomatoes hurled at the event do not meet standards for selling as food and so would otherwise be thrown away. A smaller event for children, the Tomatina Infantil, was held on Saturday. Some 22,000 people hurled tomatoes at each other in the world’s messiest food fight in Spain’s Tomatina festival. Around 165 tons of the fruit were thrown, squished and splatted in an hour of fun in the annual event in the small town of Bunol, 25 miles west of Valencia. Security was stepped up this year amid fears of the potential risk of a terrorist attack, following the horrifying events in Barcelona earlier this month. The tomatoes, which cost 36,000 euros (£33,300), were brought to the town in six large lorries then into the main square, the Plaza Layana, in a smaller truck. Revellers come from around the world to take part many sporting swimming goggles to protect their eyes. Increased security saw 700 police, firefighters, paramedics and volunteers working to ensure safety, with police cordons and bollards in place to prevent an attack. The mayor said that following the attacks in Barcelona and Cambrils which killed 16 people earlier this month, the security at the festival was 'very good and capable of resolving any problem.' The mayor also said an army of 80 cleaners would have the town looking as good as new within two hours of the festivities ending. He said: 'In about two hours there is no trace of tomato on the streets. It seems incredible that there has been this festival because the town is completely clean.' Juan Carlos Moragues, the Madrid government's delegate in Valencia, said: 'Our aim is that people are only talking about the war of the tomatoes and that the festival is talked about around the world because of its originality.

Scared 11year old Oregon boy calls 911 from the back seat of his mom's car to report her driving drunk.

Washington County Sheriff's Office posted the image alongside the caption: 'Deputy Gilderson conducts DUII investigation after 11 year old boy calls 9-1-1 from car to report mom is driving drunk'
A drunk driver was reported to police by her own 11-year-old son, who rang the sheriff's office from the back seat. Nicole Norris, 30, was pulled over by deputies from the Washington County Sheriff's Office and cited for DUI. The youngster has been praised for his actions. The sheriff's office posted an image of Norris being stopped, alongside the caption:'Deputy Gilderson conducts DUII investigation after 11-year-old boy calls 9-1-1 from car to report mom is driving drunk'.Deputy Shannon Wilde said 'I think it absolutely says that he’s a courageous young man, who knows the difference between right and wrong.' She continued: 'I think that takes a lot of guts and he obviously felt unsafe enough to the point where he had to reach out for help, which says a lot about the situation.'Norris was found to have a blood alcohol content which was nearly twice the legal limit, when she was pulled over at around 9pm on Saturday.

7 Year Old Boy Gets Stuck in Washing Machine While Playing Hide and Seek.

A 7-year-old boy had to be rescued by a team of firefighters in the strange incident in the city of Kharkov, Eastern Ukraine. We’ve all slide into a place that we can’t get out of before😃 the young boy who was playing hide and seek with his sister got stuck in his hiding spot a washing machine!. The boy, whose name was not released, was reportedly playing hide and seek with his sister inside their families flat. The boy likely thought he had found the perfect hiding place when he crawled into the washing machine. But once he climbed inside, he found he was stuck and couldn’t get out. He was forced to shout out for help, revealing his hiding place. Family members tried in vain to pull the boy out of the front-loader and were forced to call emergency services for help. A team of four firefighters arrived and, after assessing the peculiar situation, decided to cover the boy in sunflower oil, making it easier to slide him out. During the 20-minute rescue operation, the firefighters also used a plastic fan to give the boy more air because he was feeling claustrophobic in the tight space of the washing machine. After almost no work, the youngster easily slid out of the machine, almost without help. One of the firefighters recorded the incident on his smartphone and it has since spread online. When the boy was freed, the firefighters checked him to make sure he had no injuries before handing him back to his relieved mother. The firefighters later said the boy showed courage for not shedding any tears throughout the ordeal.

Teenager saves mother's life two days after learning about stroke symptoms in school.

A teenage girl in the US state of Wisconsin stepped in when her mother had a stroke, having learned what to look out for just two days previously in a school science lesson. Katie Murphy, a 14-year-old from the city of Waukesha, called an ambulance after she noticed her mother Christa Murphy's speech had become muddled. The student remembered her science teacher had told a story to help them recognise symptoms of the serious condition."Her speech was all mixed up, it didn't make sense at all. Then I had gone back to that story, and was like: 'Maybe she's having a stroke'," Katie told local news channel WISN. Nearly six million people are killed by strokes each year but knowing how to spot symptoms quickly can save lives. The letters stand for: 'Face', which can appear droopy on one side and may leave the person unable to smile, 'Arms', with weakness or numbness in one arm, with the person unable to lift both at once, 'Speech', which may be slurred, garbled or completely interrupted, and 'Time' as it's important to act as quickly as possible if a stroke is suspected. Katie said the lesson at St John's Lutheran School had made her think it was "kind of cool and weird" that difficulty speaking could be the first signs of a stroke. Ms Murphy, 45, told the broadcaster she couldn't believe she might be having a stroke where the blood supply to part of the brain is cut off, or when a blood vessel supplying the brain bursts at her age. She said she asked Katie for help after she found she was having trouble with her daily routine, including everyday tasks such as putting toothpaste on her toothbrush. Around 85 per cent of strokes are ischaemic, which means they are caused by a blockage or blood clot in an artery or vessel that supplies the brain with oxygen. Someone in the world has a stroke every two seconds and they occurred 152,000 times in the UK in 2016, according to the Stroke Association."I tell stories constantly, I knew a story was something they would grasp onto," said Katie's teacher Beth Tomlin. Other symptoms of stroke include sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body and in the face, arm or leg; trouble seeing in one or both eyes; and sudden confusion, dizziness or lack of coordination.

due to Home office visa error'student risks losing place at Oxford University.

Friends of Brian White have launched a campaign to get him into Oxford University.
A talented chemistry student risks losing a place at Oxford University due to uncertainty over his immigration status. Friends of Brian White, 21, have launched a petition urging officials to review his case after what they say were errors made by the Home Office. The petition now has 70,000 signatures. Brian was brought up in an orphanage in Zimbabwe until age six-year-old, before being adopted by a family who later moved to the UK. The student only got permission to join his relatives in Britain at age 15 and excelled at school with four A* grades at A-level. But when he applied for student finance, his immigration status was red-flagged, leaving his future in doubt. Supporters say mistakes were made with Brian's paperwork when he first arrived in the UK. They say he should have been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain by the Home Office, but was instead given Limited Leave to Remain, meaning he was ineligible for student finance. The Home Office says that delays were caused by Brian applying for the wrong status. A petition urging officials to step in was started by Brian's friend Luke Wilcox. He hopes to demonstrate to the Home Office "just how many people consider Brian a fitting and valued member of the United Kingdom".A #GetBrianToOxford campaign has also been launched to raise awareness of Brian's case. Oxford University needs to know whether Brian will accept his place by the end of August. He has already deferred it once. However, the Home Office is not due to rule on his case until a month after that. The Home Office said that Brian had been turned down on his first application for naturalisation as he did not qualify under the immigration rules. It added a second application for leave to remain was still under consideration."We recommend people seek independent legal advice on their immigration case," a spokesman added.

Seven sets of twins start first year in Irish secondary school

The seven sets of twins on their first day of secondary school
Teachers at a Wicklow school will be seeing double as seven sets of twins start the first year. The students attended their first day at Colaiste Bhride, Carnew, Co. Wicklow today. Just two of the sets of twins are identical, making it somewhat easier on their teachers. The twins, Brendan and Daniel Bolger, Aoife and Erin Callaghan, Ashleigh and Tasha Farrell, Brian and Sean Kenny, Jake and Rebecca Kenny, Emma and Jack Rodney and Padraic and Aoife Stafford, joined a class group of 155 first-year students. Deputy principal Anna Gahan told they realised in recent days that they would have an unusual number of twins starting school."At most you’d have two sets in a year group. We were very shocked but they’re delighted that there was a bit of a fuss made of them on the first day," she said.“They mostly have opted to be in the same base class but some of them want a fresh start,” she added.“We are looking forward to getting to know them as individuals.”The pupils are joining a student body of around 840 students in the rural school, with students attending from counties Wicklow, Carlow and Wexford. First-year students at the school had the school all to themselves to settle in today and will be matched with senior students who will help them settle into life post-primary school. Sadie Bolger, mum to twins Brendan and Daniel (12) from Aanagh, Gorey Co Wexford said the twins were happy to learn they would be attending school alongside so many sets of twins.“They used to be when they were younger but not anymore. They’re brilliant now I have to say. They’re in the same base class but in some subjects they’re separate,” she said.“It probably is a good mix for them… from the time they were babies they have never been apart.“It’s good for them,” she added. The boys are identical and people struggle to tell them apart their mum said.“They’re very alike nobody knows their grannies don't know them [apart],” she said. Despite this, she doesn't think the boys will cause any mischief for their teachers in their new school.

'I wanted to be like other kids'Minnesota girl with no arms learns to ride bike.

A five-year-old girl with no arms has defied all odds by learning how to ride a bike.R.E. Pranke was born with bilateral phocomelia, which is a birth defect that meant she has no arms. But she hasn't let this disorder stop her from living a normal life like other children. While R.E.'s family turned the option of prosthetic arms, for now, they asked doctors if they could find a way to let her ride a bike. Her specialists at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare in St Paul, Minnesota, took on the challenge and created a special device for her. This isn't the first time that R.E. has been able to be self-sufficient with her disorder. Her mother, Karlyn Pranke, R.E. uses her feet to feed herself, brush her teeth, drink and even colour in between the lines. But this technique would be futile if she wanted to try cycling. Bilateral phocomelia is a birth defect that typically occurs if both parents have the recessive gene for the disorder. It can cause the shortening or absence of legs or arms in a person. For some people, the condition can stunt the growth of just one arm. In R.E.'s case. she was born without either.R.E. could get fitted for prosthetic arms if she wanted to, but her family said she didn't want them.' I wanted to be like other kids,' she asked her specialists to help her ride a bike like everyone else but without needing to use arms. Her specialists created a device made out of P-V-C pipes and braces. It wraps around her back and slots into the handlebars of her hot pink and purple bike.R.E. is then able to steer the bike with her shoulders while keeping it balanced and she said it feels like flying. Her favourite part about riding a bike is pedalling because of how fast she can make the wheels move.' Just freedom... I mean you should hear her giggle when she is able to do it,' Kathryn told KSTP.' I want people to know that just because she was born without arms, she can do the same things as everyone else.'

The world's ONLY twins with uncombable hair syndrome.

The twins' mother first noticed their coarse hair when it started to grow when they were babies
Uncombable hair syndrome is a rare inherited disorder that causes locks to stand up from the roots and not be flattened. Such hair is usually silvery-blond or straw coloured. The hair usually appears between three and 12 months of age. In rare cases, the syndrome has occurred alongside bone and eye abnormalities. The syndrome usually resolves or improves at the onset of puberty. It may be more manageable by applying Conditioners and using soft brushes. Nine-year-old twins are two of around 100 children worldwide with a rare condition that means their wild blonde locks are impossible to tame. Agnetha and Anja Norendal have uncombable hair syndrome (UHS), which means their manes are constantly frizzy and static. Their mother Angela, 52, from Cockermouth, Cumbria, is desperate to find out if they are the only twins in the world with the syndrome. She said: 'People around town where we live are used to them, but if we go elsewhere, the amount of people that stop and stare is unbelievable. We constantly get people asking for photos or to touch the girls' hair.' I'm really keen to find out if there are any other twins out there with it.' Their mother said.' They didn't mind the fuss when they were little, but now they don't like it as much.' But they love their hair. They wouldn't change it for the world, and this way, they'll always stand out in a crowd.' They've never had any negative comments. The kids at their school are all great about it. She said: 'They're very proud of their hair, and love that they both have it. 'I'm really keen to find out if there are any other twins out there with it.'' As soon as the twins started growing hair as babies, their mother, who works with the elderly, noticed it had an oddly coarse texture. Then, after bringing them along to a routine appointment with her other daughter Yannika, 20, a doctor remarked on their unusual tresses, saying she thought they may have UHS. A hair sample from each of the girls was taken away for testing and, despite no formal diagnosis being made, the family are convinced the girls have UHS. Their mother said: 'I don't know what else it could be.'I think it affects the colour too, as they have the same white blonde shade as a lot of other children with UHS.'

Shooter in deadly New Mexico library attack is a juvenile prosecutor

The shooter in a deadly attack that left two people dead and four wounded at a small-town New Mexico library is a juvenile, the local prosecutor's office said on Tuesday. Police and prosecutors in the eastern New Mexico city of Clovis were searching for a motive in the shooting, interviewing the teen who opened fire in the Clovis-Carter Public Library on Monday afternoon, officials said."We are in the infancy of this and we will have to gather information and talk to him and find out if he will give up any other information," Police Chief Douglas Ford told a news conference. A spokeswoman for Curry County District Attorney Andrea Reeb said the case would be handled in juvenile court but would give no other details about the alleged shooter. Two females were killed and two other females and two males were wounded and taken to University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, about 100 miles (161 km) southeast of Clovis. Two of the patients were in critical condition, hospital spokesman Eric Finley said. Neither he nor local officials gave the ages of the victims or specified whether they were adults or juveniles, although local media showed at least one adult woman loaded on to a stretcher. Vanessa Aguirre was in the Clovis-Carter Public Library with her son when a man came in and started to shoot into the air, the Eastern New Mexico News reported."It all happened so fast," she told the newspaper. "We took off fast. My purse is still in there."Police surrounded the library building for more than an hour, the newspaper reported. Its website published images of a young man being led away by a police officer, and a woman being carried into an ambulance. Clovis, with a population of about 40,000, is around 190 miles (300 km) east of Albuquerque. It is home to Cannon Air Force Base.

Nigerian Mum Found Her Missing Son through Facebook after 3 Years.

Suleiman Abba Umar was abducted on January 6, 2014, in Kado, Abuja, after the close of school. His family searched for him in Nasarawa, Kano, Abuja and Kaduna state to no avail. Sharing his experience, Umar said after his abduction by unidentified persons, “I regained consciousness only to find myself on a pile of corpses by a beach, some with missing heads or limbs. I was terrified”. According to Daily Trust, the teenager said he had to work menial jobs, like bricklaying, to survive. He later started visiting a football viewing centre where he met one Muhammed who took him in. According to him, one of the boys he met at Mohammed’s place advised him to search for his parents on Facebook. He said he found his mother’s Facebook page but there was no response to his friend request which led him to try adding their mutual friends and one of his cousins accepted. Suleiman, now 15, said when he told his cousin who he was, he thought he was a fraudster but later reluctantly sent him his mom’s number. Binta, his mother, said she was asleep when his call came in.“To my shock, I heard Suleiman stammering at the other end. As I heard his voice, I knew it was him, and I began to cry, and he joined in,” she said. Binta said although it was 1am in the morning, she could not wait to get to Lagos having lived with the pain of losing him for three years.“It was past 1:00am and I couldn’t wait to get to Lagos. I reached out to agents for flight tickets, to no avail, as virtually all the morning flights had been booked,” she said.“In the morning, I rushed to the airport has finally got a flight for noon. As I was doing this, I reached out to Katsina Liaison Office in Lagos to help, as well.“He’s totally changed, he’s now a man, and darker as a result of hardships he’s been through.” 

Good Samaritan found little Nigerian boy who went missing in Rome

Excitement almost went wrong when a family discovered one of them was missing on their trip to the Vatican city. The little Theirry had drifted away and was no where in sight. This put the whole family in fear as they searched through St. Peter's square for the boy. They were joined by strangers on the search to locate the boy when they saw the fear in their eyes as they feared the worst. Only for the boy to be brought to them by a good samaritan in company of a Vatican police.The father narrated the experience on Facebook with the following: AND THEIRRY GOT MISSING... In the euphoria of being admitted to the Basilica, our little son slipped from our tight grip. By the time we realised we're short-one, euphoria dissolved to hysteria. The ensuing traumatic drama was indescribable as the entire St Peter's Square resonated with our loud but palpable search wailings. It was like we cried in 'tongues' as almost all visitors from different walks of life could decode our heart-broken cries for help. Some instinctively joined us in this race against time. We feared the worst with a fast receding consolation that we're in a holy land. As the Swiss Police were preparing to raise "A MISSING PERSON' alert, this good Sameritan with a Vatican Swiss (Secret) Police showed up cuddling in her arms my little Thierry Okenze Aguguom who himself was then exhausted and wet in his own tears. Thank you Lord... Thierry got missing BUT FOUND.

19 year old sick stalker chops off 15 year old girl’s HAND for turning him down

Image result for 19 yr old stalker
A jilted lover chopped off a 15-year-old schoolgirl's hand with a sword at a busy Indian market in broad daylight. The attack took place at the Lakhimpur Kheri market, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, when the victim was shopping with her younger brother. The girl was immediately rushed to a private hospital where doctors are trying to stitch her dismembered hand back on. Vinod Chaurasia, 19, is accused of attacking her and is alleged to have been stalking the girl for past few months. Vinod, who works at a welding workshop, spotted the girl shopping with her younger brother on Wednesday afternoon. Police claim he followed her to try and convince her to go out with him but when she turned him down, he took out the sword and cut off her hand. He then repeatedly struck her with the sword but fortunately, the crowd overpowered him and handed him over to the police. A senior police officer said: 'The girl was referred to Lucknow for treatment as she was in a very critical condition. She had lost a lot of blood. Our priority is the health of the girl, who is still critical.' Once her condition improves, we will record her statement following which the motive of the attack can be clearly ascertained.' The shocking incident came days after a minor girl was stabbed to death by her alleged stalker in Balia, Uttar Pradesh, while she was on her way to school. Stalking was made a serious crime a year after a physiotherapy student was brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in 2012. The offence invites three years in jail and a fine. Despite that, the cases of stalking are phenomenally increasing in the country. In 2015, 6,238 complaints about stalking were registered of which 519 were from Uttar Pradesh and 1,123 from the national capital New Delhi.

The African Nonagon- Art and African Values by 17 year old Chimfeka Ogbo

Chimfeka Ogbo, a student of the African Leadership Academy, showcased his art installation at the Maryland Mall in an event put together by Children and the Environment (CATE) initiative.Chimfeka is a founding member of the CATE Creativity Green Club, a not-for-profit which promotes environmental issues among young people through the Creative Arts.He explained that the inspiration to create the work came from his entrepreneurial leadership class which pushed him to work on an art piece entitled “The African Nonagon” as a Summer school project.Africa is a land of values and morals, a place of creativity and wonders. If you have any doubt about these things, a glance at the genius work of art by 17-year-old Chimfeka Ogbo would definitely make you a believer.The African Nonagon connects the different values that makes Africa a proud and great place. The art depicts nine African values; Wisdom, Peace and Harmony, Africanism, Curiosity, Unity in Diversity, The Supremacy of God, Courage, Humility and Strength.The project was created using the Adinkra symbol mostly. The Adinkra symbols are believed to have their origin from Gyaman, a former kingdom in present day Cote D’ ivoire. The Adinkra are used extensively in fabrics and pottery and also architecture among the Akans of Ghana and Cote D’ Ivoire.The artist revealed he had been consciously creating art for the past 10 years. He noted the experience of not being able to communicate with his art as the biggest fear he harbours as an artist. He also expressed concern about the level of appreciation accorded works of art in Nigeria, and appealed to organisations and government to provide support for creative artists and their art.With creative young minds such as Chimfeka Ogbo who is willing to preserve and communicate Africa’s values and creativity through his works, there is indeed hope for our dear country, Nigeria.

16 yr old British Nigerian Maths Genius Heads to Cambridge University.

Andrew Ejemai, from Brentwood School in Essex, will become one of the youngest of this year’s intake of students at Cambridge University after achieving ‘A*’ A-Level passes in Additional Further Maths, ‘A’ grades in the new Linear Chemistry and Economics and achieving Grade 1 in STEP II and III, the Cambridge University maths exam, in one academic year.The son of Nigerian couple, Sunny and Ronke Ejemai is set to study Mathematics at one of the world’s most prestigious institutions, Cambridge University in September at just 16.The teenage genius made news back in 2013 when he became the youngest person in his school’s history to pass an A Level exam when he gained an 'A*' in his Maths A Level at the age of just 12.The course is highly competitive, attracting more than 1,400 applications this year. Speaking to The Voice about the fact that he will be attending one of the world’s prestigious universities two years ahead of his contemporaries, he said:“I’m mostly grateful to God Almighty for helping me to achieve this great feat. I believe that without hard work, perseverance, parental and school support this would not have been possible. Ejemai recalls that his potential was uncovered at the approximate age of four, when a teacher asked him to write a simple formula for a sum and he pencilled down a complex equation, instead.Ejemai's father Sonny insisted that black youths will only excel if they receive adequate support, primarily from their parents.The best mentor for children should be parents. Me and my wife believe that every child has the potential to be a genius, but parents need to nurture their talent. Andrew’s mother, Ronke, would give him various challenges centred around school subjects and outside activities, and this started at the age of three," he told The Voice.“I saw that encouraging youths can be tough, but parents need to be focused and dedicated to the cause. It’s a marathon. But if they start early and have the G factor-the God factor  it’s possible to provide a good foundation. It’s all about dreaming big and giving children the opportunity to try things.”He added:“My key advice is having plenty of parental involvement.”

'I'm looking at a picture of my daughter duct-taped to a chair, and her facial expression, I can just imagine how she felt,' Brooks said to KFVS
A four-year-old girl's parents are demanding that child services shut down a Missouri daycare center after they were sent a picture of the child duct-taped to a chair.The Missouri Department of Children and Family Services sent a picture to Elysha Brooks and Christian Evans showing their daughter taped to the chair at Little Learners of Florissant in Florrisant, Missouri.'One of her teachers DuctTaped her to a Chair and posted her on SC (Snapchat),' Brooks said in a Facebook post.Received a call from a hotline and they sent me this pic of my baby. This incident supposedly happened in March and the daycare still fail to inform us of the situation.

I believe this gave me a spirit of extreme determination, a trait I believe, is my most distinct feature. he stated.In his words, “After strenuous struggles at the prestigious Kings College Lagos, I was admitted to study law in Obafemi Awolowo University at 15. Young, naïve and free-spirited, I took up the challenge of studying law – and a daunting challenge it was! My initial years were rough. I initially had a writing style used across all examinations, but wildly fluctuating grades quickly taught me to pick courses only after careful enquiry, and tailor examination answers to the tastes of the particular lecturers.”His second first class degree was from the Yenagoa Campus of the Nigerian Law School after which he proceeded to The University of Cambridge where he bagged the third first class degree in spite of several challenges.This feat has further drawn attention to the emergence of a new generation of young Africans ready to cause a dramatic positive change through their dedication and resilience.
