Peace Hyde has delivered a rousing speech to over 1000 millennial women at the 2019 Flourish Africa Conference in Lagos, Nigeria.
The founder of education non-profit Aim Higher and the head of digital media and partnerships for Forbes Africa graced the prestigious event, created by one of the wealthiest women on the African continent, Folorunso Alakija. It comes after Hyde suffered a grade three ligament tear to her right ankle over a month ago.
Still badly injured and struggling to walk in a cast, Hyde’s speech which stirred the audience’s emotions was focused on her remarkable journey where she overcame challenging obstacles to make the transition from a science teacher in the UK to one of the continent’s most successful media personalities and education activists.
She encouraged the women to not be scared to move in order to disrupt their environments and to use their skills to achieve their fullest potential through faith, hard work and perseverance.
