Face2face Africa has announced the 2015 Young Africans Committed to Excellence (YACE) fellows who will be honored at the Pan-African Weekend taking place this July. As part of the Pan-African Weekend‘s mission to highlight and celebrate the ideas and individuals transforming the pan-African community. Face2face Africa searched far and wide to find some of the brightest, most inspiring, and most promising young pan-African professionals who are already making notable impacts in African affairs.
The fellows were whittled down through Face2face Africa search to find some of the brightest, most inspiring, and most promising young pan-African professionals who are already making notable impacts in African affairs.
More than just their current contributions, these burgeoning innovators, diplomats and engineers were chosen because of their promise and ambition. They are exemplars of the vanguard of the next generation of African leaders who will continue to shape and transform both the internal dynamics of the continent and the rest of the world’s view of us in the near and far future.
The YACE Fellows will kick-off the Pan-African Weekend with a Master Class presentation at the African Union on Friday, July 10th, where they will discuss their journey, impact, and vision for Africa. They will then be presented with awards at the FACE List Awards the following day.
