Entrepreneurship is a very complex journey. It doesn’t matter the books you read, you need someone who has walked into your shoes to guide you. As the founder of ‘Choose Yourself’ Judicaelle loves to say: Entrepreneurship is like riding a bike. You have to actually jump on the bike. You have to fall before you master how to ride it perfectly and you need guidance throughout the journey. In the journey to making sure African women are accessing economic and social power, the first step is to equip young African women, entrepreneurs, and social leaders. As such, ‘Choose Yourself’ introduced an annual entrepreneur fellowship program ‘Grow With Us’ for young African Women. Now, for the second year, Choose yourself calls out for the 2020 Entrepreneur Fellowship for African Women.
