Tiffany believes NGU prepared her well for her ministry with Access to Success (A2S), a Nigerian educational nonprofit. The ministry provides sustainable programs that generate positive change for Nigerian children and their communities.
Their vision is that each child/person in Nigeria finds a dignified path to a successful life and is empowered to live out God’s plan for a future filled with hope. “We run a daily after-school academy for over 200 children, provide summer camps (basketball and empowerment camps), offer scholarship programs, and each summer we have what’s called an “entrepreneur incubator” for business-minded students to pitch business ideas that will grow their community,” she said.
Tiffany says this provides the students the opportunity to partner with U.S. businesses and be mentored as they work on their business plans. She believes NGU paved the way for her to be involved with an organization like A2S. Before A2S, Tiffany spent time living abroad in Senegal, as well as a few years in China. She says she chose to attend NGU because the moment she walked on campus, it felt like family.
