10 -year-old Zuriel Elise Oduwole, from Nigeria, is already making a name for herself in the business world. Earlier this year, Zuriel was the youngest person to be interviewed by Forbes in their August 2013 edition of Forbes Africa. Unlike most 10-year-olds, Zuriel spends her free time interviewing entertainers, government officials and politicians. Some have already dubbed her the next Oprah Winfrey.
In honor of her achievements, Ethiopian Airlines recently named Zuriel their Global Ambassador. The airline’s Regional Director for the Americas Kagnew Asfaw, who signed the Memorandum of Understanding on behalf of the global African Airline highlighted her astonishing achievements. As part of the agreement, the airline would be Zuriel’s official carrier to her many engagements and projects across three continents, including Africa, and South America, where she is continuously meeting with world leaders as an advocate for educating young girls.
How about that for girl power!
