The memories which I see clearly in my rear-view mirror are crystal: things I have been privileged to do, places I have been, people I have met and times that seemed to last forever. I am thankful for the many experiences I have had that have shaped the person I am today. I would honestly change absolutely nothing about the road I have travelled, because it doesn’t matter exactly what I did; it matters that I did some things and I learned from them.

I can’t believe it’s almost four years since I wrote this reflection.

I remember that time when I was debating the merits of technology in classrooms on a radio station in Botswana a few years ago. As is the case in many schools, technology was outlawed for students during the school day, and the debate spilled over into society. I argued that it was an unsustainable policy in the long-run because we (young people inclusive) are all perpetually drawn towards our devices, so perhaps we should be helping them use it responsibly rather than tell them to shut off their roving minds for more than half the day.

The debate around technology will never end, I guess, but considering that nearly every wellness program tries to get us to use less of it, while social networks are configured to keep us glued to it, we appear to be caught in a perpetual tussle.

In 2018, 1.57m Nigerians wrote WAEC; 1.06m of them scored 5 credits including Maths. Unless universities absorb them or they get jobs, they're done. Yet, we must not simply turn out graduates, we must develop an education system that encourages thought, innovation and practice.

What if students took two years of the most relevant university courses, spent two years in the workforce, then came back to write final exams, being assessed on the relevance of concepts learned in the real world. Will this cause a much-needed revision of university curriculums?

Thought from 3 years ago: “Those who've made a career out of bashing the youth fail to realize that each generation engages with the world the way they find it; our generation is engaging with an internet-driven world created by the same people who blame us for utilizing it.

Considering the number of church buildings that sit empty for 90% of a week while we complain that govts aren't building schools, imagine teachers who could be employed; students who could be reached; businesses that could be patronized…
