Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
A world that works for everyone is a world where we complete each other instead of compete, where we add values to the world and not vices. A cosmos where we see people in the light of their potential and not their problems, supporting them to discover and harness their potential for the good of all and sundry.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The word today is full of plethora of problems. What I see as the most pressing problems the world is facing includes:
Corruption: This has eaten deep into the fabrics of the society leading to injustice, violation of human rights and loss of lives. Corruption cripples development. It has bedeviled our religious, political, educational, judicial and other sector of the nation.
Poverty: Poverty is a deadly virus messing up the psyche of many people today especially in Africa and the recession is adding salt to injury.
Lack of visionary leadership: Many nations today are backward or struggling because of the consequences of visionless and selfish leaders. Such people are only focused on amassing wealth and using power for their own gains. Such people are cogs in the wheel of progress.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved? (Minimum 100 words)
I think these problems can be solved if we first and foremost accept that they exist and then we face them truthfully and with seriousness. Corruption is a result of moral decadence therefore people must live morally upright lives. Poverty is a serious issue which can be tackled by government creating more job opportunities, developing an enabling ground for private businesses to thrive. Leadership positions should be made available to those with genuine heart to serve the people and not those who are power-thirsty and after their selfish aims. Everyone must join hands to make the world a better place to live in.
I am Ifeanyi Enoch Onuoha from Eastern part of Nigeria. I am a thought leader, human capacity developer, writer and transformational leader with interest in youth, human and community betterment. I use my sagacity in helping individuals and organizations make better life, living and legacy. As a young man, I see different needs or challenges in my society and I do my best to initiate solutions for the ones I can.
I have written some life-enriching books like “Overcoming The Challenges of Life,” “Leadership Torch,” “Wisdom of Winners” and other unpublished works. My writings are featured in websites, blogs, newspapers and magazines. I am the pioneer and co-editor of “The Phenomenal Woman Poetry Anthology – Collections of Poems in Honor Of Dr. Maya Angelou.” As a ghostwriter, I have ghost written books that are impacting lives.
I love reading, I have teachable and team spirit. I love rubbing mind, connecting and collaborating with great minds. As a rising leader in the globe, I have set my best foot forward to develop my edge and bring about the leadershift needed for transforming Africa. It is my desire to travel to other parts of the world, meet, network and learn from great leaders and come back and better my fatherland. I organize and speak in seminars, workshops, conferences, et cetera. I am generous with my sagacity because it is my wish to save people from making the same mistakes I made. I go to schools and talk to students on the need to be good citizens, and developing their potentials.
I lead “Hinovelty;” a solution-oriented life-betterment organization involved in consultancy, mentoring, training, coaching, publishing, et cetera. I represented Nigeria at the 2014 International Leadership Blogathon and I am a winner of the Urban Books Authors and Writers of America (UBAWA) best book cover contest.

As a young man, I have dedicated my time and resources in helping people turn their goal to gold. I love watching, reading and listening to inspirational and educating movies, books and music. I love eating good food too. I can cook some of my Igbo native delicacies. As an illustrious Nigerian, I am not happy about the corruption and leadership issues in my country, on that note, I started moving about to get other young people of like minds to work together and transform the nation. Learning is an integral part of growing and reading is one of the means therefore I read wholeheartedly to improve my life. As a writer, I write to enlighten, inspire and challenge readers to be their best and as a speaker, I speak to educate and empower lives. I also coach and train writers because sharing their stories can impact lives. As a leader, my goal is to raise other leaders. I have a dream to build a cutting edge school that will help people discover and maximize.
