A personal testimony of the maiden FYNI mentorship webinar.
In this short piece, I want to try to bring to you my experience in the just concluded maiden mentorship webinar organized by FYNI.
I must confess [and many others hold this same confession], that I have not enjoyed real motivation, like the one I saw in the mentorship webinar.
You could feel the passion; the trueness; and genuineness in the voices of the professors & our guest, Mr. Israel, as they shared their stories with the family. Yes, the family…
Suddenly, I could feel that I belonged to one big family, one that I may not have known before, but connected by what we all hold in common – the desire to learn from advanced professionals who have walked the talk [and are still in the game.]
About a hundred & sixty-seven participants at one time were present in the webinar. I was drawn into history, as Professor Adejumo told us stories of his early days as a registered nurse [adventures I was jealous of.]
His narrations, captivating me, and opened a sort of vista to me, as I began to vividly imagine him some thirty-something years ago, as he made progress, becoming one of the most respected nursing professionals on the African continent and the world.
I was having a filled day, and I learned a lot from that single meeting. The passion in the voice of Professor Adejumo is so contagious; it’s like a good virus that quickly colonizes the heart of anyone that allows it inside.
I have a very strong feeling that nursing mentorship has found a new face here in Africa [and the world.] And one factor that makes me fall totally in love with everything is the faith in God that they bring into the whole game, it makes it extraordinary.
I have written a similar article on the FYNI Blog [it’s yet to be published, once it is you will get a prompt], and there is an official report waiting for you to also read, accompanied by testimonies, and a replay of the webinar [which when made available will be sent to those who have subscribed to FYNI mail list, or who follow on Social Media.]
I still have a lot to say. Some of my readers & those in our community may have observed, that I am not a very good “conference man,” don’t get it wrong, I love good conferences, and I can do all that it takes to be in one. The clause is that I don’t avail myself of just any conference. I take my time to scrutinize the kinds of conferences I attend because I know how precious time is, and I know that we must make sure that we spend the currency of time wisely – spending my time attending FYNI Maiden’s mentorship webinar is certainly a wise investment of my precious time, and volunteering to be on the team is divine.
If you missed that conference, well, you have not been left behind, you can still enjoy the reply on the official Website, and you can also pick up excerpts that have been prepared, and chew on them, while you prepare to attend future webinars.
It is my tradition, to once in a while feature the presence of some of the organizations that I write for on Care City [it’s a form of honoring them.] And may I announce, that our wonderful readers will be seeing more awesome features from FYNI on Care City.
If you have not subscribed to our mailing list, kindly do [we don’t bother your mails.] And before I leave you for a season, I happened to start writing on Substack some weeks ago; I want to use the platform to bring all my writings under one roof. You can read my inaugural essay & do not forget to subscribe, share & if you have got a second or two, drop a comment.
