Start-Rite Day Secondary School celebrated women across the globe on International Women’s Day with an assembly on 8th March 2019.
Guest speaker, Buchi Onyegule and host of Morning Mojo on WeFM 106.3 FM Nigeria engaged the students with the theme and hashtag for this year #BalanceforBetter. He highlighted to students their roles to realise a balanced society by ensuring they speak out about gender inequality and stereotypes.
Also featured on stage, three-time All African Music Award (AFRIMA) nominee Ogecha who spoke about being able to graduate with a First Class Degree in the mostly male-dominated field of Industrial Engineering. Ogecha encouraged women to chase every dream using herself as an example that as a woman you can ‘have it all’.
Ogecha sang her hit ‘Intentionally Woman‘, a song that celebrates women who are doing amazing things with the life God has given to them; women who refuse to just let life happen to them; women who are determined to conquer the odds and make the most of whatever situation they find themselves.
