Batch 41
Cafe Jade

Through the difficulty in securing employment opportunities after a wide search with less support, Ibrahim Kante found out about WAVE through a flyer during his job search. He decided to enroll in the program after engaging with the outreach intern.  In his words, ''I knew that I needed this opportunity to improve my communication skills to stand a chance of getting a job so I decided to find out more about WAVE and later gave it a trial. After he identified his flaws through WAVE, he was able to learn and develop his ''communication and also acquired leadership skills.''

He trained at the academy situated at Yaba.  He admitted that the ''WAVE training changed his perspectives on how better to handle different situations which made his experience a much more fulfilled one.''

After the training exercise, he job shadowed at Nylah’s Kitchen as a kitchen assistant where he learned some unique skills and gained exposure. As an assistant, he was exposed to more situations which served as experience in relation preparation of certain dishes, learned names of both local and inter-continental delicacies.

Ibrahim works at Café Jade Limited, Lekki phase1, where he is the headwaiter. With what was imparted in him, he has been able to apply and enjoys the communication flow he has developed over time with his colleagues and customers at his workplace.

Though very passionate about reaching his goal, Ibrahim hopes to own his restaurant in the nearest future. He believes that there are challenges to be faced but he knows that God will do something good and also if one can be humble, patient and diligent, things can turn around for the better. He hopes every job seeker can embrace the opportunity WAVE has given to him.
