My mission is to meet the knowledge needs of our society. For I believe I will surely amass wealth by solving ignorance issues in my beloved continent, Africa. Most people oppose my thinking which they perceive as literally absurd because I strive to change the status quo with the power of writing. Well, "Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds," Albert Einstein revealed. Yes, I want to solve Africa's problem of ignorance. Everything else is secondary. And nothing can curtail my burning ambition to impact our African society with my life-changing writings. Donovan Bailey's famous quote remains my guiding principle, "Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don't let anyone limit your dreams."

Our dear continent of Africa is plagued with a myriad of problems. Surprisingly, our academically oriented brains have failed to fix those common problems. I tell you, young African geniuses with social entrepreneurial initiatives are rather solving such troubles. I find the story of Sulley Amin incredibly inspiring. This Law student sacrificed his school fees just to start a charcoal business which manufactures tonnes of branded charcoal in Ghana. Indeed, there are other success stories which prove that Africa is steadily rising to the challenge of the 21st Century. In fact, many African youths brimming with priceless passions are pursuing excellence, discipline and hard work, and are always measuring their works with global standards. That was the dazzling instruction of Sangu Delle, the CEO of Golden Palm Investments.

Moreover, I have committed myself to eliminating general ignorance in Africa in my lifetime. That is the pathway to my greatness, success and prosperity in life. I remember when Pastor Chris Oyakhilome said that success is triggered by identifying a human need and reaching out to meet that need. Also, I am destined to emerge as a rare titan in the world of writing because I will do the unthinkable with my gift of writing in the world. So why should I merely chase higher academic qualifications without effecting any significant change on planet earth? However, my lifelong responsibility is to purify the defiled mindsets and attitudes of the black race. Believe it. I am 19 years old now, but I am actually working on it with a great deal of passion, innovation and excellence to make that dream a reality one day.

Okay, do you also want to make any far-reaching impact on the African continent as an African youth? Discard the ridiculous notion that the future of Africa looks bleak. There are a plethora of economic opportunities in the resilient economy of Africa. Really? Oh yes! Our recurrent problems in various sectors are those economic opportunities which can generate wealth if they are well maximised. I therefore challenge young Africans in every nook and cranny to take risks, make sacrifices, defy the odds, and dare to be different, as they endeavour to meet everyday needs of the African people.
