Guoji Dui Pre-launch Program
"Earlier in year 2019 - I think around April, I unintentionally stumbled on an article about the plans by Guoji Dui to extend it's online Chinese language teaching service to Africa, which would offer lots of scholarship opportunities and career pathways to Africans. At that time, the article was part of a recruitment test by an international non-profit, Sustainable Development International (SUSDEVI). When I came across it, something struck me and I quickly picked interest. So I searched out and sent a message to Guoji Dui about my long held interest in China and how I'd like to enroll for their classes and even render voluntary service to support their vision for Africa. Surprisingly, I got a reply after about a week asking about me and if I had a travel passport. I quickly replied in the affirmative and was booked for a Visa interview at the embassy in Lagos. That was how, "like play-like play" I got into the Pre-launch Program. So, although I couldn't get the job with SUSDEVI (unlike two of my friends that were lucky), I am still thankful for how this opportunity turned up. An all expense paid trip to spend six amazing months in China. The experience so far, is WOW!"
