E125 - The Route To CEO Of UK Youth With Ndidi Okezie OBE
“…there is this sense that the reality we all live in, the society that we all live in, is determined by people and their decisions. And so, if we can make better collective decisions we can create a better world. I don’t think that’s naïve. I honestly believe that everything that we take as given – someone has decided that that’s the way it’s going to be, and nothing demonstrates that more than 2020" - Ndidi Okezie OBE
In this episode we speak to Ndidi Okezie OBE about her journey to become CEO of UK Youth, and how her first year, coinciding as it has with the COVID-19 pandemic, has both challenged and inspired her.
In this fascinating interview we learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on the youth of the country and why things must change in order to give the youth of today the foundations they need to build a brighter, fairer, and more equal future.
