What inspires you?
My inspiration is derived mainly from the written literature most especially the bible and some books written by renown African writers like John Ruganda and Chinuea Acheabe. This is because they give me a desire to move on and always think positively and not to accept others make decisions for me and always be my self but not to do anything to please others but rather that will benefit me, make me happy without interfering the with those around me.
Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
The vulnerability of the girl child towards HIV-AIDS infections is one that matters to me most. This is because most people don't think that girls most especially in the Developing countries are the ones that are facing this major problem since they are subjected to harsh treatments like domestic violence and child abuse as their voices take long to be heard. Since am a youth leader, i have tried with other youth groups to create awareness upon the community through music, dance and drama where we show the vulnerability of the girl child and how they can be helped by the different people around them regardless of the age.
Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
Personally, a good leader is one who may be in position to listen, analyse and critically reason upon the issues of his/her people without affecting any of his/her community members. A good leader should be able to judge wisely just like King Solomon did but not with out fear or favour in order to balance his/her power effectively.
Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already? Please tell us how.
TIG can help/has helped to achieve my goals because it has helped me to link with many others who surely feel that a girl child surely needs protection which involves all community members. However, I think that TIG should help some youth by sponsoring them in different ways, most especially on issues concerning health such that they can get a chance of sharing it with people from different countries. Otherwise thank you very much we really appreciate the services.
