Great leaders can come from anywhere, from any country, and any social class. I want to help inspire the next generation of African Leaders. That is why I am proud to share that I have partnered with @alueducation education, to launch the Patoranking Scholarship. This Scholarship will allow 10 young promising leaders to get a degree from Africa’s Most Innovative University. If you are a young leader who deserves a chance, an opportunity, but does not have the means to attend university – please apply. If you know someone who deserves this opportunity – tell them to apply. Find out more at PatorankingScholarship / Link in Bio. #PatorankingScholarship #StudyAtALU
