Hi, hi

For a while now I've been fascinated by young people who just go out there and make things happen. These people are not limited by money or location or even the political landscape. If they believe it, they do it. So since I had some time on my hands and access to a camera, I decided to do video profiles about young people who were making positive things happen in Nigeria, through their work, activism, businesses, art, NGO's e.t.c. I also profile young people whose personal stories are inspiring and who maybe beat the odds to get to where they are today. I hope you enjoy them and find some inspiration to pursue your dreams and/or change your world for the better.

If you are a young Nigerian who is already Making It Happen, then keep on doing what it is you are doing and perhaps one day I will be able to interview you. In fact, you can send me an email ( to let me know what it is you are doing to make things happen. On the other hand, if you know someone or some people who are making positive things happen in Nigeria then email me as well.

Thanks to family and friends for their support and suggestions.
Thanks to those who volunteered to participate in this project.
Thanks to the strangers who also gave me help wherever I needed it.
Thanks to my boss for giving me access to his camera and computer.
Thanks to God because He makes things happen.
