A 24-year-old graduate from Adeleke University, Ugochi Vivian Obi-Obasi, has revealed her journey of self-discovery and introduced an upcoming workshop during an exclusive interview with AkweyaTV.
The workshop, titled “Vision Board Mastery Workshop,” is set to take place on December 9th and 10th, 2023, aiming to equip young individuals with the tools to set and achieve their goals effectively.
In the interview, Ugochi highlighted the struggles many young people encounter in setting clear objectives due to a lack of self-awareness.
“As young people, many don’t know where they want to start in achieving their goals. This vision board will help you find your way, just like I did,” she said.
She stressed that the initiative behind this workshop is “to foster a sense of introspection when it comes to setting goals for the community.” Her motivation to initiate this workshop stemmed from her experience facing obstacles in personal development two years ago. She disclosed how the pressure she imposed on herself to reach her goals led to a significant blockage. However, she overcame this challenge by creating a vision board—a method that enabled her to methodically work towards her aspirations.
Ugochi shared how she got a couple of NOs when embarking on this journey and how those NOs made her prepare more for the journey. “When embarking on this journey, I got a couple of NOs, and this discouraged me from starting this journey, but at the same time, I felt I had something to impact on other people. This gave me a reason to begin this journey.”
Throughout the conversation, Ugochi expressed gratitude towards her mother, acknowledging her as a guiding force in this transformative journey. Her mother’s motivation inspired Ugochi to launch the Vision Board Mastery Workshop, underscoring the significance of mentorship and support.
In a closing message directed at young people, Ugochi reiterated the importance of self-discovery.
“If you know nothing, if you know no one, know yourself.”
This powerful advice encapsulates the essence of her workshop, encouraging individuals to embark on a journey of introspection as a foundation for future success.
