Biola Alabi Named 2014 Yale World Fellow

She's one African woman I draw inspiration from so, when I heard the news about her latest achievement, I boomed with excitement.
Biola Alabi will be Joining 15 other World Fellows selected this year from thousands of applicants world wide as a 2014 Yale World Fellow

The former M-Net Africa Managing Director and currently M-Net's director of special projects is the seventh Nigerian selected for the prestigious fellowship since the programme's inception in 2002.
 Attending Yale's campus in New Haven, Connecticut, for five months, Alabi will take part in specially-designed seminars in leadership, management and global affairs; receive individualised professional development training; attend courses and engage in discussion with a wide range of distinguished guest speakers. 
She resigned as MD earlier this year before taking up her new role as director of special projects at M-Net.

After her Yale fellowship, Alabi will pursue new career opportunities. M-Net sub-Saharan Africa CEO Patricia van Rooyen says Alabi's selection as a Yale World Fellow was well-deserved recognition of her talent, commitment and leadership. "African film and television are much richer for her hard work and inspired, visionary thinking over the past five years," Van Rooyen said. "We wish her every success in what will certainly be a glittering career."

Well deserved. Like I always say, she's a beacon of hope and inspiration to many young African girls and women. 
To me this is the real 'cool'. Women who achieve and are hardworking, what's not there to admire and aspire to?

 Congratulations, my inspiration Biola Alabi :)
