10-Year Old Zuriel Oduwole Makes History On Forbes Magazine

A Nigerian girl, 10-year old Zuriel Oduwole has made history as the youngest person ever to be interviewed on popular magazine Forbes.

The interview with the award winning documentary film maker, conference speaker and writer is featured in the August 2013 edition of Forbes Africa.

Touted by some as the next Larry King, and ARISE News as the next Oprah Winfrey, Oduwole  is  reportedly committed to rebrand Africa by showing the positive things in about the continent, and making  the case for education the Girl Child in Africa and Emerging Markets.

As an invited guest to the recent African Union 50th anniversary celebrations in Ethiopia, she has in her quest of pursuing her goal interviewed leading African business, political, and sports personalities, including eight  current African Presidents, Africa’s richest person, Aliko Dangote and Tennis super stars Venus  and  Serena Williams.

Zuriel (which is Hebrew for God is my Rock) believes if she can walk a mile, then there are girls who on seeing her work and progress made, would walk a mile and half.

That, she believes is one simple way to inspire the African Girl Child, and show the world the need to educate the continents often forgotten Girl Child, of which Zuriel is one.

  • I’m beyond amazed. She’s just 10! I’m inspired too! Africa is looking good. It will only be a while before we see more youngsters like her doing BIG!

    • there are many Africans and African Americans doing greatness.
      in American we a 14 yr old girl and a 17 yr old male both African Americans who has graduated college with a bachelors degree. 4 yr old who name all states and tell you the capital, a 9 yr old who can quote scriptures………Many out there but they just do not make it into euro americans media.
