Meganne is one amazing young lady you should all meet.
I’m Meganne Lorraine Boho, I am very passionate about sports particularly soccer. I created a group of soccer lovers on Facebook since 2013.
My inspiring African Hero is no one else than my mother Madam Lucile Boho. She is a woman with a big heart who taught me the power of forgiveness. I’m still amazed at her courage, she is a very wise woman. I pray so that I can have the greatness of her heart. All I am today is because she pushed me ahead, she sacrificed her time, her happiness so that I can achieve all my goals in life. She is my angel and I will always thanks God for having her, she is a blessing for me. In brief she is my African Hero.
I’m a freelance translator and also a journalist at Tomorrow magazine, a web magazine which promotes youth leadership, and entrepreneurship. We believe youth are the present and the future and we celebrate the youth that can be cited as examples for a whole generation. Besides, I am an advocator of women leadership and gender equality through the association SEPHIS. Women empowerment is at the center of our fight. I am the assistant manager of the communication department and I do as much as I can to help our dream become true.
On my tomb stone I would like to see written: lovely, courageous and inspiring mother, spouse and daughter
Finally for me, YALI means capacity development, networking and meeting of the best young African minds. I hope to gain a new family and new skills that will help me make a huge change in my country back home.
