Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
A world that would work for everyone is a world of love and respect for all, a world where people’s views and ideology would be respected as long as it affects all in a positive world. A place where love for all race, tribe, religion, language, countries is key and negativity is not accepted at all.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problem facing the world today is the ‘’True Leadership Problem’’ all we have today are leaders who are self-centered and power driven always looking forward to acquiring more power at the expense of their followers, the present day leader lacks direction and focus, no plans, no goals but he is more interested in the acquisition of power and amassing. Once the head is faulty it affects the whole body, the world need a new breed of leaders who are readers and have no greed, leaders who love with their whole life and value the voice of their followers. Leaders who are not afraid to stand up and speak the truth, I mean the True Leader with a heart of love.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
This problem can be solved if there’s a proper upbringing of the future generation, we may not be able to repair an adult but we can definitely prepare a young man/woman. I believe leadership is by example and the best place to learn about leadership is from the home. A happy home would definitely produce a happy family, but a broken home would produce a broken family (there are exceptions though). We need to re-define the family values all over again, most families are in a mess parents can take a grip of their lives, divorce is the norm of the day; fathers are not there for their kids to show them the way. We are all a product of one family or the other, we need to remind parents of their roles, i believe the society is a reflection of the family unit, the focus should be more on the family and it would definitely reflect on the society at large.
My name is Femi-Charles, Afolabi I am 29 years old and the first child of three children in a family of five, a Nigerian by nationality, speaks English fluently, and a graduate of Covenant University with a BSc. in Accounting. I worked with KPMG Nigeria for 2years as an external auditor and moved to a manufacturing company as an internal auditor.
I am a dedicated, passionate and hardworking young man who strives for excellence at all times, I volunteer for social work whenever the opportunity arise and i personally visit the orphanages on a yearly basis to touch the lives of the children there. I believe in making a lasting impact wherever I find myself and leave behind me a positive lasting memory.
I have being privileged of being a leader right from my secondary school days, I was the Asst. senior prefect while i was in secondary school and was saddled with welfare of over 1000 students across level also during my university days I was the Editor in Chief of the Nigerian University Accounting Student Association (NUASA) Covenant University chapter, and I was able to published the accounting magazine with the concerted help of my editorial team during my tenure. I like to hanging out with my friends, see movies; my favorite movie is the Bone Collector starring; Denzel Washington i also enjoy writing and reading, ‘’leaders are readers’’, my favorite book is 360 degree leaders by John C. Maxwell. I love playing soccer and snooker as an indoor game.
My goal in life by God’s grace is to be a leader in the field of finance and am currently building my career in that line and I know I would be a world leader in the finance world. I was a zonal leader of the Nigeria Christian Corpers Fellowship (NCCF) during my one service period for my country, where I was responsible for over 400 corps members in my zone, I also handled the building project of the fellowship, and I member of Young Disciples Intl. (YDI) a full time youth ministry with over 2000 youth a ministry which have being a member of for over twelve years. I am presently a fellow in the ministry and also sit as a board member too.
My principle about life is simple, I believe in living life to the fullest, God has deposited in all man a great seed of purpose which must be discovered, developed, continuously nurtured and lived to the fullest. I believe a man who has discovered his purpose can achieve any height in life as long as he/she stays connected to God I also believe in adding value to humanity. A person must refuse to be an everyday person because we are divine unique beings that even angels marvel about rather a man or woman fully loaded with discovered purpose going somewhere to happen and affect generations even the unborn ones, because the world is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God and we are the light of the world a city set on an hill can’t be hidden.
