As part of the US Annual Black History month of events, the country celebrates the immense contributions African Americans have made to the development and advancement of society at large. One of the world’s largest magazine publishers, New York’s Conde Nast, with titles such as Glamour, New Yorker, GQ, Golf Digest, Vanity Fair and VOGUE, has listed for its Teen VOGUE Edition 17 Teenagers it believes the world should take note of.
Covering entrepreneurs, activists, e-commerce developers and creative artists, they are seen as part of the fabric of the new America, demonstrating leadership qualities in their various fields. Zuriel Oduwole was among those profiled, while the magazine enunciated her works in the area of Education Advocacy and Film Making, especially her new exciting initiative of educating the next generation of African filmmakers, with her basic “Film Making 101′ project. She has now taught more than 300 youths in Namibia, Kenya, Mauritius and Nigeria on this program. A student from her first class in February 2016 – 24 year old Anna Kalola, made her first film nine months later in November 2016, using a borrowed camera.
Earlier this month, she was profiled extensively in Forbes Europe’s French edition, which is distributed in France, Switzerland and Belgium.
