A Little Girl With a Big Voice – Zuriel Oduwole Age 11 years

Zuriel and President Jakaya Kikwete - Tanzania State House


Zuriel is a very intelligent, mature and passionate daughter of a Nigerian father and a  Mauritian mother.

This little girl has a big voice and it is growing stronger…and it is NOT a singing voice.

The family, which also includes two younger sisters, lives in Los Angeles, California.

Zuriel and her sisters are home schooled by her parents.

On her website bio page Zuriel lists her Vision and Mission as follows:


Vision & Mission 

“As a girl, I am concerned that not every girl has a right to get an education or a chance to accomplish her dreams like me.

My vision is to see that this changes one day, and my mission is to use my “Dream Up,
Speak Up, Stand Up” program to inspire girls to accomplish this mission.”

She also says that she would like to President of the United States so that she could be a great influence for her cause worldwide.

Even now she is making far more progress  than any ten or eleven year old girl would likely even hope to make.

Zuriel is not any other girl, however.

In fact, she was named the most powerful 11-year-old person in the world today based on being the youngest person to be interviewed by Forbes, Magazine.

Let the videos and website give you a firsthand view of this extraordinary.”African descended Girl Child” as she refers to herself.
