The Future Awards is a ceremony to celebrate great young minds between the ages of 18 and 31 from various sectors.
I went through the list of winners today and I learnt that everyone can serve humanity in any capacity they function; and that we are capable of doing anything we put our minds to.
Here are the amazing ladies who won their categories.
