Every Child… I for one as a mentor, sessions meant for the mentees has also enlivened me. This has allowed me to have a rethink about my own life.
I know I have been activated! My apologies to my mentees for sharing in their experiences.
Mr. Adebola Odu-Onikosi in facilitating the journey of guided learning challenged campers to be at their best and strive for excellence. Using life examples of his growing-up and learning years in Mushin on his personal journey to excellence.
I registered for the 2014 AYC camp but couldn’t make it because I couldn’t be excused for a week from work. However, that didn’t stop me from registering for AYC 2015. I am glad that I could take time off work to be here. My experience hasn’t been a bed of roses, but it has been laced with different sets of beauty. I had thought I was coming here to be a mentor and be of help to the campers, which I am doing to the best of my abilities. More importantly though, I have also been mentored as a mentor. We got here a day before the campers and had facilitators educate us on diverse topics that will enhance our role as mentors. I particularly enjoyed Mr Taiwo Akinwumi’s session and though his session was funny, it was enlightening. I understood that even trivial things might not be so trivial when it comes to raising the right kinds of teenagers and children. Even songs, words and ‘white lies’ shape them in one way or the other. They do as we do, not as we say. So we must not only speak right around them, we must do right. We must be right.

- INNER SELF: Character, Confidence, feeling of self worth and values we assign to ourselves.
