John speaking at the 2012 POY Global summit in South Africa.
John currently runs The Open University of West Africa, an organization that focuses on education solutions for impoverished countries.
"POY has provided resources that we didn't have before. With the network of POY it allows us to fully step into our model, it think that if we were missing anything before we have it now"
"Sometimes you feel like you are alone in this work, you feel that you are up against a big world and that you are very small. The real value of POY is convening exceptional people that help reinforce that we are doing it right"
