Ex-BBNaija star mentors over 100 kids on etiquette
The event, which held in Lagos in partnership with The English Manner Nigeria, teaches children the laws and procedures of etiquette, and how they can maintain emotional intelligence.
Tagged, “One Day Children’s Etiquette Training’, they were also mentored on leadership, deportment, problem-solving skills, dining etiquette, public speaking, amongst others.
According to Asogwa, who spoke during the training session, “most times as individuals what we need to succeed in life is emotional intelligence, hence the need to train the kids on soft skills and etiquette”.
She revealed that during the course of her etiquette class with the organisation years back, it dawned on her that many kids needed the training
“I know it’ll be nice to contribute positively to the proper upbringing of these kids and give them an opportunity to learn what I learnt especially at their young age.
“Children are adorable angels and the purest of hearts. They deserve all the attention they can get as they grow because they are quick to grasp, they have the sharpest brains and are open to learning” she said.
“Living in a world where first impression, character and charisma almost defines a person, I’m very passionate about instilling the right values in children because it pays and will definitely be of great use to this country and the world at large, now and in the future” she further added.
