Success Aladeselu, a student from Nigeria, achieved a remarkable victory at the recently concluded Global Youth Climate Summit 2023 which took place in Tanzania.
The summit was jointly organized by the Global Youth Leadership Centre, the Tanzania Forest Service Agency, and the University of Dar es Salaam, among other esteemed partners. The event saw the participation of over 500 passionate and driven changemakers from different parts of the world.
“When the announcement was made, and my video appeared on the screen as the first winner among nine others from different countries, coupled with my friends at the summit congratulating me, I felt overwhelmed with gratitude, joy, and a bit of embarrassment.
“It took me a moment, but eventually, I was able to embrace the thrill and honour that came with such recognition and opportunity. It didn’t end with my selection as a delegate but I also won The Youth Climate Champion Prize/Grant for my project entry. This was incredibly elevating,” she said.
