Aderonke Esther Oyewole, a young female Entrepreneur and investor who is also a student at Istanbul Gelisim University, Istanbul, Turkey has been nominated for Global Peace Summit Turkey 2020 to represent Nigeria.
She counted this as a step in the right direction as a passionate change maker. This year GPC selected 200 candidates from all over the world and she was selected as the only fully funded delegate to represent Nigeria.
They provided fully-funded, partially, and self-funded seats. Participants were selected based on their application, social experience, and leadership qualities.

She also said it’s an occasion that will help her brainstorm, share her ideas, and proffer solutions to the peace problems faced by Nigeria and the whole world with other change-makers across the world.
