Zuriel Honored by Malta President H.E. Marie Louise Preca for Her Girls Education Work

Nigerian-American filmmaker and education advocate Zuriel Oduwole has, once again, been named on Forbes Afrique’s annual list of 100 Most Influential African Women.

Forbes Afrique, a franchise of the Forbes magazine is distributed in all 23 francophone African countries as well as Switzerland, France and Belgium.

First featured on the list in 2016, 15-year old Oduwole is joined on the list by other Nigerian women such as United Nations deputy secretary-general Amina J. Muhammad, CEO of MainOne Cable Funke Opeke and Standard Bank’s Chief Executive of Africa Regions Sola David-Borha.

“I am always thankful when anyone thinks I am doing something right because I have a lot to learn,” Oduwole told The Guardian.

“I hope many youths can see that they too can make a difference around the world or in their towns at any age.”

She was in Paris in June this year to speak at a UNESCO event where she was honoured for her work on Girls Education Globally by the President of Malta.
