FBA Foundation empowers graduates with career growth tips

The Funmi Babington-Ashaye (FBA) Foundation Mentoring Program has told its recent graduates to embrace good character and utilise it for successful leadership and career advancement.

The foundation, at the cohort 2 graduation ceremony, noted that whether in leadership, professional pursuits, community involvement, or personal relationships, good character remains a crucial factor.

Lola Adeleye, president of FBA Foundation, said: “Character is the invisible thread woven into the fabric of your being, influencing how you navigate challenges, embrace opportunities, and ultimately shape the legacy you leave behind.

“As you step into the next chapter of your lives, remember that your character will be the bedrock upon which you build your success.”

Funmi Babington-Ashaye, founder of the foundation, said the mentoring programme had grown since it started four years ago, and now has around 80 strong alumni members.

“As you move forward, I urge you to nurture and prioritise your character. In the face of challenges, let your integrity be unwavering. When confronted with choices, let your moral compass guide you,” Babington-Ashaye said.
