What inspires you?
What inspires me most is seeing young people engage themselves in activities which are channeled towards the development of self and the community. I feel inspired when I see young people build up values for themselves. Not any kind of values, but useful and helpful values which are not just generally accepted as a societal norm but as moral ethics.
Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
The issue that matters to me most is that of encouraging the youths to clarify their values in life. For example, the issue of HIV/AIDS will not be a much task to address if the youths share good values for their self worth. That is by recognizing the fact that they are so uniquely made that nothing, not even poverty should make them render themselves to be sexually used or abused. Youths with such values will not consider sex work as the only way of faring for themselves, but will engage in self dependent activities such as mini trade, arts work e.t.c. which can yield them good morning and respect.
Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
A good leader is not just a person who directs a group on what he believes should be done. He is a person who communicates to his subject what is to be done and make them to identify the relevance of that thing being done, how and when, after that, he shows a good example by being the lead in the enforcement of that particular task. A good leader must not be easily discouraged to give up in any situation, but he is to be like a mentor to the followers and a source of encouragement.
