Yesterday, 28th September, 2017, I was privileged to attend the Social Good Summit summit. Since it had been a while I attended an event as this, it was a great pleasure for me to be there. The Social Good Summit is an initiative of the United Nations (UN)  aimed at using social media to attain the sustainable development goals. And my friend, Abraham Ologundudu (@iamoabraham on twitter) convened the event! 

Present at the summit were Victoria Ibiwoye, a recent Law graduate and founder of the One African Child Foundation, and Dayo Samuel, a podcast guru whose podcasts have been downloaded over 20,000 times across the globe. Each of them shared relatable experiences and practical ways through which the new media has helped them both in their individual careers. 

I enjoyed being at the summit because I got to see that the social media is more important than I possibly ever thought in ways deeper than ever. For more details on what was said at the event, follow @bramodigi on twitter and read through their timeline. Check out pictures from the event below:

I already met Dayo on twitter a couple of years back. Meeting him in real life was a dream come true for me.
