- As one of the global panellists in the summit, Adelle is taking on the world to push the agenda for innovation, education, empowerment, freedom and entertainment for Generation U.
- The Children’s Global Media Summit, formally known as World Summit on Media for Children, was founded in 1995 and is held every three years in different parts of the world.
Adelle Onyango met with Prince William and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge as they arrived for a children's summit on on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 in Manchester, England.
The Duchess, who is expecting her third child, spent several minutes with Adelle to discuss cultural differences between Kenya and the UK as well as effects of cyberbullying on internet users.
Though Adelle is popularly known for her bubbly conversations on KISS100 FM, she rose to international limelight when she began a campaign against rape and online harassment.
Her efforts were lauded by the BBC who then named her among their award-winning 100 women and later chose her to represent Kenya in this year’s Children Global Media Summit.
The summit kicked off on Tuesday bringing together creatives, technology innovators, policymakers, executives and thought leaders from across the globe.
This year’s focus will be to inform and redesign the future of media for Generation Unlimited (Generation U) and explore the impact that digital technology will have in children’s future.
She has a robust social media platform #TeamADELLE through which she mentors and inspires young people to maximise their potential and achieve their dreams.
