Miracle Ikechukwu seems to be living up to the recent appointment he got from Governor Rochas Okorocha as an appointed Education Ambassador of Imo state.
The pilot on his Instagram page disclosed his plans to help young students all over the country choose a career path that best defines them.
In his post, BBNaija's Miracle said that students should be encouraged to follow other unconventional careers like music, film directing, artist. Rather than being compelled to always follow the conventional ones.
As a flag off of his project, Miracle visited his primary school where he spoke to the children on self-esteem, career paths and having confidence.
He wrote: "Since winning Big Brother Naija season 3, I have been committed to using my recent fame and profile in the media for positive change in Nigeria and hopefully across Africa.
I will be visiting schools to speak with students - boosting their sense of self esteem and encouraging them to make positive choices. Despite being an advocate of conventional discipline (Doctor, Lawyer, Engineer, etc). I am also a strong proponent of choosing an unconventional career paths (Pilot, Artist, Film Director etc) and believes in empowering young people to dream.
I am determined to use my public position for good. I want to use the influence I have to fight for positive and sustainable change in Nigeria and across Africa. I want to fight for children across this continent and their right to a quality education. I want to inspire young people to dream and pursue their passions. I want to encourage unity across our continent so we can eliminate poverty here. I want to be an example to anyone across Africa who has wealth, fame or power that says you have the power to make a difference. Let’s invest in our young people. Let us invest in our Africa.
I visited my former primary school today and I was blessed and humbled by the love and encouragement. I went to give, but I received. The entire experience was very emotional for me and I could not hold back tears at times. I learned today, first hand, that when you give it comes back to you.
Thank you to all the teachers, parents and my humble principal who supported me and the kids today. I truly appreciate your kindness and friendship.
The theme for today’s visit was Education, Sport and Health Awareness, so we distributed free Nigeria National Team Jerseys and Educational materials to encourage sportsmanship, unity and aspiration. We were also encouraging everyone to show their support for Nigeria this World Cup – Go Super Eagles! @ng_supereagles
