Emmanuel Macdonald anchored the event and it was a very entertaining and engaging one.
He started with a question and answer session where he asked questions like; “what is your definition of mentorship?” and “who is a good mentor?”
Destiny Idongesit, one of the participants replied thus: “A Mentor is someone who inspires people. Another participant named Daniel Aka said, “A mentor is a motivator”.
After defining mentorship, the anchor went further and gave examples of mentors and listed some examples of mentors and he gave the participants an opportunity to talk about their mentors and why they’ve chosen that mentor.
“Robert Kiyosaki is my mentor, his books gave me insight about business and money” says Donaldson Ebeta.
Mrs. Fransica who is a banker and makeup artist inspired Blessing Izuokwu to venture into the world of makeup and today Blessing is an established makeup artist.
Sunny Anderson who is a chef and food network personnel, changed the beliefs of Wisdom Macdonald. She taught him through her cooking shows that cooking isn’t for women only and that men can also take pride in making exquisite delicacies. He wants to become a professional chef someday.
His second mentor is Richard Templar who is the author of the “Rules Series”. He also talked about how his favourite book “The Rule Of Life”, taught him how to relate and better understand the people around him.
Divine Favour ended the session by summarizing everything he had learnt from the club. In his own words, mentors should be brave and be able to create leaders who can rise above them and take on the challenges of life.
The anchor brought the event to a close by encouraging everyone to be a mentor and to get good mentors. A short comedy video was played to end the day on a lighter note.
