The 21st century has been very challenging for most African youths who still walk with the conviction that “Education is the key to success”.
By Fonban Emmanuel
This assertion may be true to a limited extent.
We have seen in recent times people who made the best scores in their University life, gallivant the streets unemployed while adopting funy lifestyles to comfort themselves.
My piece of advice to fellow young people in Africa , if it may count is that;
“Do not study ANYTHING that can’t help you to be enterprising and self employed”
“Do not study with any agenda of getting a job, Study to create a job”.
These convictions are relevant to me because, if you study to get jobs, employers will frustrate you, whereas if you study to create jobs, you will always look at how to make possibilities that can burst new and better opportunities for yourself and others.
Nowadays,skills are better than certificates.
Skills sell whereas certificates don’t employ.
