Nigerian girl makes FORBES Magazine history

As an award winning documentary film maker and writer Zuriel has, in her quest of pursuing her goal, interviewed leading African personalities, including eight current African Presidents, Africa’s richest person, Aliko Dangote and Tennis super stars – Venus and Serena Williams.

Zuriel believes if she can walk a mile, then there are girls who on seeing her work and progress made, would walk a mile and a half.

That, she believes is one simple way to inspire the African Girl Child, and show the world the need to educate the  continents often forgotten Girl Child, of which Zuriel is one.

  1. Its going to take a very long time for teenagers from the northern part of nigeria to get to this hight,they locked most of their kids up in kule,and the ones outside kule are given the orientation on stampeding people to kill.wht the north need now is education and not position,its a pity,may God have mercy.

  2. I hope the proponents of child marriage are watching cos if this brilliant girl has been given out in marriage at a tender age, she will never attain this feet. Keep it up girl God will continue to be your guard.
