Hey Kuulpeeps, y’all know how we are always looking out for you and getting you content that you love and all…
Today, we have something better for you!
It’s literally a once in a lifetime opportunity and you have to make your hands ready to grab it, hold it tight and run with it.
Do you remember the story we did about that Ghanaian chef who is billed to cook ‘Waakye’ for Queen Elizabeth II?
He got that opportunity because he was chosen as one of the 2017 Queen’s Young Leaders awardees.
He won the award with two other Ghanaians and now, almost every door they knock on opens for them. Who wouldn’t open the door, they’ve got the approval from the The Queen herself!
Obviously, the Queen is aging and it seems Buckingham Palace is clearing house to make way for the next British monarch.
As a result, the 2018 Queen’s Young Leaders Award will be its last and this is why you must get through that door before it shuts permanently.
If you’re reading this before 11 P.M on Monday 21st August 2017, then you have an opportunity to get through!
The Queen’s Young Leaders Programme was established by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust in partnership with Comic Relief, The Royal Commonwealth Society and the University of Cambridge’s Institute of Continuing Education.
