ABOUT A BOY AND HIS DREAM FOUNDATION
Founded by Ambrose "Sunny" Okosun, A Boy And His Dream is a foundation created to inspire positive change in the lives of less-forunate children in Nigeria and across the world.
As Sunny was beginning his life in March of 1973 in Lekki, Nigeria, his parents' marriage was ending. Left with his grandparents to eke out a living in a small village, Sunny was separated from his mother and was not allowed to see his birth father. From a young age, he was dealt a hard life.
In A Boy and His Dream, Sunny shares the struggles he endured and how he strived to overcome those early challenges. From hunger to being ostracized by a polygamist family, he experienced severe poverty while growing up. At the same time, his elders imparted important lessons that Sunny took to heart, including the message that he was in charge of his own destiny.
Sunny currently lives in Chicago, Illinois. He earned an Associate's Degree in Health Care Management at the University of Benin, and a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration at Ambrose Alli University. Sunny earned his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in finance and accounting at Purdue University-North Central.
