In May 2011, Grace Ihejiamaizu from Nigeria was selected as one of Google's 12 Young Minds, who were the first young people to ever attend the Zeitgeist event. According to Grace, "Zeitgeist 2011 was an inspiration. The experience was amazing and the networking platform it provided was awesome!" As a Young Minds Ambassador, she is not only inspired to continue her work with RYPE, she aims to do more and impact the lives of many young people in Nigeria.
