As someone who liked spending her time helping kids in orphanage homes and hospitals, being a kid herself, no wonder Omotoke Olowo has achieved so much so far, and deserved to be a role model for many people. This inspiring young lady from Nigeria has been named OD Young Person of the Month for June2018. She is also an Ambassador fellow for ROI Africa, an Ashoka Changemaker and 2018 Mandela Washington Fellow. Her first contact with disabled kids made such an emotional impact on her, she ended up founding her own NGO - The Autism Awareness Place, where children with autism feel respected and accepted as a part of society. Her journey includes teaching children of migrant fishermen at the Makoko community the art of reading and writing, training teachers in rural communities on how to facilitate learning for these kids and helping their parents to face all the challenges. Her mission is clear – to lend her voice and strength to the ones society keeps neglecting.
