‘Little Amanpour’! Meet Zuriel Oduwole, The 14-Year-Old Who Interviews World Leaders!!

The amazing 14-year old, Zuriel Elise Oduwole, is a female education advocate and film maker who constantly fights for the rights of African girls to education.

Two years ago, when she was only 12 years old, Zuriel became the world’s youngest filmmaker to have a self-produced and self-edited work after her documentary, A Promising Africa, was screened in over 3 countries.

Her impressive resume has allowed her to meet with over 20 presidents and prime ministers in line with her education advocacy work – including the leaders of Jamaica, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Liberia, South Sudan, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Guyana and Namibia.

Zuriel’s advocacy has unsuprisingly made her the youngest person to ever be profiled by Forbes. She was also listed as the most powerful 11-year-old in the world by Business Insider and just last year Elle listed her in their annual feature of “33 Women Who Changed The World”.

With all these accolades and all the amazing work Zuriel has been doing it’s easy to forget she is only 14-years-old, but with her intense passion it’s clear she is only just getting started.
