Africa's Most Influential Woman Finalist in Arts and Culture Mauritius

31 August

Very well done to our inspiring Mauritius Principal, Adila Budullah, who was a Finalist for African's Most Influential woman and second in Mauritius in Arts & Culture in the 2017 IOC Regional Symposium & Awards held in Mauritius.

Africa’s Business and society leaders stand on the cusp of significant challenges. Showcasing the best leadership the IOC Region has to offer in recognition, symposium and award ceremony. With 4000 contestants from 57 countries.  The recognition process  was a stringent one, with a four path judging process.

Adila says she will continue in following her passion to serve the people of Mauritius with developing children and adults through the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy - making a difference in the lives of others. It has been an exceptional standard of nominees and to have progressed this far is significant. We all in the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy celebrate this incredible achievement. Adila has worked so hard to build her amazing school, following the programme with such passion.

African Helen O'Grady Drama Academy Director, Duncan Rice, says: 'Adila we are so proud of you - you are amazing, inspirational person. Your Academy has grown magnificently through your enthusiasm and creativity and we know that many of the children attending drama in Mauritius are the richer for your input.'
