A 10 year old Nigerian\American Girl Makes Forbes History...

Zuriel Elise Oduwole, an amazing 10-year-old
of Nigerian-American heritage, has made
history as the youngest person ever to be
interviewed in Forbes.
The interview with the award winning
documentary film maker, conference speaker
and writer is featured in the August 2013
edition of Forbes Africa.
At just 10, whiz kid Zuriel possesses amazing
talent that has resulted in her
interviewing business leaders, current and
past world leaders and heads of states.
They include the current Presidents
of Tanzania, Mauritius, and Malawi–one of
Africa's only two female national leaders.
Others are ex-presidents Jerry John Rawlings
and John Kufuor of Ghana.
Zuriel has also had a one-on-
one interview with Africa's most successful
businessman, Mr. Aliko Dangote. She even got
a standing ovation for her sets of provoking
and creatively intelligentquestions to tennis
superstars, Venus & Serena Williams, during
their world press conference in Nigeria.
Zuriel says she has not been granted
an interview by the President of Nigeria
because of his busy schedules but hopes to
achieve that soon.
Zuriel (which is Hebrew for God is my Rock)
believes if she can walk a mile, then there are
girls who on seeing her work and progress
made, would walk a mile and half
