If only we understand the beauty of life and what it brings, there are a lot of things that we would do in our own small ways to inspire others. Our personality for the week is everything you need as an inspiration.
Known in real life as Noel Nutsugah, the affable personality hails from Dzelukofe, a town located near Keta in the Volta Region of Ghana . Born and raised by a woman who was an educationist, Noel has an in-depth understanding of what education means and has always wanted to impact society positively. This yielded dividend as he founded project ‘Warm Their Feet’, a shoe clothing brand that has social entrepreneurship undertone.
According to the enterprising CEO, project ‘Warm Their Feet’ is aimed at helping the disadvantaged who walk barefoot to school. The idea is to sell the shoes and raise enough money through crowd funding to cater for them. People who buy his shoes are one way or the other contributing their quota to this agenda, thereby giving meaning to the brand name ‘Warm Their Feet’.
He revealed to rymcitigh.com that the initiative is in honour of his mother who was a dedicated educationist whose love for the ‘have nots’ was pure. He praised her for inspiring his dream of helping the needy.
Though, there were challenges initially, he is happy about the progress. Project ‘Warm Their Feet’ is now a household name and a quality shoe brand with a clout in the market. He disclosed that a lot of lives are indeed being touched to the glory of God through this initiative, especially children from the education sector.
Noel is well-lettered. He holds a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree in Communication and Media Studies (Business Communication option) from the University of Education, Winneba and a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Corporate Communications and Public Relations from the University of Leeds, England.
Also, he has a Bachelor of Arts (BA) honours in Communications Studies from the Ghana Institute of Journalism where he graduated summa cum laude. That year, he was adjudged the best graduating student.
Due to his communication background, Noel served as a member of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). Currently, he is a proud member of the Communication Educators’ Association of Ghana (CEAG) and the Institute of Public Relations (IPR) – Ghana.
Noel’s practice in multimedia journalism and PR has made him a giant and a force to reckon with. A while ago, he was the Editor-in-Chief of the Youth Newsroom of the World Press Freedom Day celebration held in Accra in 2018. His interest in Research is highly commendable and worth-emulating.
Presently, he is an Assistant Lecturer at the Faculty of PR, Advertising and Marketing at the Ghana Institute of Journalism, having served as an Adjunct Lecturer with the Institute from September 2016 to April 2020.
After going on a hiatus from radio for a while, Noel is back with a banger. His new Programme dubbed ‘ The Mandate Index’ on Zylofon 102.1 fm. is already giving listeners the refreshing appeal. The former Holy Fm presenter says it feels good to be back to his first love.
His admonishment to the youth is to be ready to shift the paradigm since opportunities are available to those who seek them.
