Anyaele was selected out of many to participate in a virtual Gold Star program, which will be organized in honor of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
One very significant thing about his selection is that he is the only African that was chosen from Africa because of his excellent leadership skills.
