Ghana’s youngest DJ, Erica Tandoh, popularly known as DJ Switch will be performing for the second world richest man Bill Gates in an upcoming event in New York.
The 11-year-old DJ, who won the Talented Kidz Season 8, has been listed as one of the many speakers at the upcoming Goalkeepers 2018.
The youngest of them all, DJ Switch joins renowned personalities including Melinda Gates, Bill Gates, Ed Sheeran, Fatoumata Diawara, Nancy Kacungira, The Brooklyn Youth Chorus and a host of other carefully selected speakers from around the world to share their stories of challenges, innovation, and leadership.
With the scheduled event, DJ Switch will take advantage of the occasion to display her DJ skills to the world renowned man and other top dignitaries.
The second edition of the Goalkeepers 2018 will come off on September 25 & 26 in New York City, the very same period world leaders gather for the UN General Assembly.
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals for Sustainable Development to achieve a better world by 2030.
Started by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Goalkeepers is a catalyst for action toward these goals—bringing together leaders from around the world to accelerate progress toward ending poverty and fighting inequality.
This year, both the event and the Goalkeepers Report will highlight how the tremendous growth in youth populations will be a turning point for future progress in health, equality, and development. It will celebrate and inspire a new generation of young advocates who work on behalf of these causes.
DJ Switch was recently featured on a show produced by British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
