About me

ANAS YAZID

Hi there, I am Anas. Thank you for visiting my website to know more about me. I am an Academic and Entrepreneur. I am the winner of the prestigious British Council Alumni Awards 2017 in Nigeria under the entrepreneurship category. I am very passionate about learning and I enjoy helping other people learn as well. I aspire to be one of the top business leaders in Nigeria who makes good quality education accessible to children in low-income communities. My startup, Certis which is into the design and development of educational technology innovated the Yoda Box, a safe, offline tutoring assistant that makes it possible for children in Africa to watch educational videos without the internet. I am currently undertaking a PhD research at Imperial College London on the pretreatment of lignocellulosic wastes in Nigeria with tannery wastewater for bioenergy generation.
