2) Do you have daily Internet access? If so, please describe how often you go online, what kind of Internet connection you have (dial-up, cable, DSL, etc) and how often you experience technical difficulties connecting to the Internet. If you do NOT have daily Internet access, please do not apply.

Yes, I have a daily dial up kind of internet access with very little difficulty caused by weather conditions

3) Do you have access to a landline? Is the best way to make international calls on a landline or via mobile phones?

No, mobile phones are better

8-15 hours per week

6) Do you work with youth in resource constrained areas on a regular basis? Whom?2

Yes. Young people in rural communities
7) Please expand on what kind of outreach you do in 3-5 sentences:
Basically, I work with young people (mostly young women) in rural communities. I teach life skills with young people other than HIV/AIDS such as negotiation skills, sexual and reproductive health and basic ICT skills to secondary school students
8) What are your long term goals for the next 3 years? The next 5-10 years?
Develop a comprehensive ethical career in Media that seeks to explore the challenges faced by young people in developing countries especially women using new media tools such as blogs and websites and old media tools such as television.

9) Do you have experience working with different kinds of personalities/people? Please elaborate in 3-5 sentences:

Yes. My experience from working in the past 3 1/2 years as a director of Activity and later as a Director of media (The Intellectual group) has given an insight into the fact that young people do not usually see things from the same perspective and if patience and a high leadership capability is not applied to working with young people, a good idea or project can go to shambles because of communication gap and understanding.

10) Please list any community partners/other NGOs you work with on a frequent basis.

The Intellectual Group Ogbomosho, Oyo State, Nigeria

Digital Peers International

Nigerian Youth Network on MDGs

Nigerian Youth ICT4d Network

13) Applicants must have already taken, or must enroll in one of GYCA’s month-long e-courses by March 2007, offered in Project Management, Political Advocacy, and Grant Proposal Writing and Fundraising:
Course: Grant Proposal Writing Month you took it/can take it (before March): January 2007

14) Please describe any potential problems/difficulties you foresee with taking on the RFP position:

The potential problem I foresee is communicating with NFPs in the region, this is because there are three international language in the west African zone, English, French and Spanish and I can only understand English and very little French
15) Please describe anything else about yourself that would make it a good fit for GYCA:

I enjoy working with young people especially because of my ability to leverage on my Media and communication skills which I feel would help in harmonizing my work as a GYCA REP if given the opportunity to do so.

I also believe that my ability to work with people and deliver on the job when given the grace to use my initiative would fit into the working conditions of GYCA
