It’s a constant hustle..
Given the dwindling fortune of the Nigerian economy and the high youth unemployment rate, young people in the most populous black nation of the world are ever in search of empowerment opportunities to ignite their passion, connect them to people and resources to help them achieve their dreams.
Thanks to Vanguard Spark, the youth empowerment arm of Vanguard Newspaper, every Nigerian youth stands a chance to #Achieve their dreams through the Vanguard Spark Rookie contest.
Winner of the November 2014 edition of the Rookies contest, Clem Ogus, the young CEO of online newspaper, View Nigeria is not only one on the path of achieving his dreams but he is also seeing to the empowerment of others.
Before being empowered by Vanguard Spark, Clem has been involved in blogging since his early secondary school days. At 20 years, he has come to be respected in the industry after showing unrelenting commitment for over 7 years.
According to his interview with Vanguard Spark, he stumbled on information about the contest on Facebook and decided to hop on. One month later, Clem was empowered with a cash grant of 0.2million Naira courtesy The Spark Sage, Chief Dr. Chidi Anyaegbu, CEO CHISCO Group.
With this empowerment, Clem was able to grow his business. As he stated in his interview,“Money wey don enta voice mail :D. Well, I already used it to expand my business and increase my labour force.”
In order to accommodate his growing workforce and scale up, View Nigeria was also able to acquire a new office in Delta state.
