From awpnetwork.com to CNN Startup Africa
We first met Bukola Dawodu when she participated in the AWP Network photo contest, although she did not win the contest, Dawodu has maintained a great mentoring relationship with AWP Founder, Mary Olushoga.
In her photo contest application, Dawodu wrote, “I started my business when I could not find a job. I grew up with the mindset that whatever you build or create in favor of the environment (either directly or indirectly) will be beneficial. I am passionate about designing and constructing aquariums so I started the business with some of my classmates.
Though the market is a bit tough, I believe that with time and more effort, things will change for good. This business is my job and I am proud to be an entrepreneur. As a young African entrepreneur, my voice matters because I need the support and encouragement to continue my business as an independent aesthetic entrepreneur in aquarium design and construction.”
Congratulations to Bukola on a wonderful feature. As an African entrepreneur, her voice matters.
