My YELP experience has been amazing. It has been a vital point for me to actually find my voice and also manage to network with the fellows from different countries, different sectors and backgrounds. It has really helped to see what other fellows are doing and what they would want to do for their countries.
Now it is up to us to actually make change in our countries and also to build a network to make a difference in Africa.
