YELP Experience

Leaders aren’t born,they are made.And there are made just like anything else, through courses and experience.
The YELP fellowship has help me learn many tricks that effective leaders utilize to break their walls.Besides, it has made me understand that together with like-minded people I met in YELP, we can deal with all Africa’s barriers and create the Africa we all want.
