What inspires you?
I am very much inspired by the the potential that l have soon realized in me. It took me quite a lot of time to realize that l can sing, make good art (drawings) due to the absence of adequate knowledge and resources. When l was in my lower grades of Education l could not dream of leading anyone nor prospering in life due to the way l used to fail at school. That alone inspired me to stand up on my feet and work harder even for my brothers and sisters.
Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
I am really concerned about the way some young people tend to ignore issues that are affecting them whilst they do not take into consideration that the world that we are approaching is theirs to lead. I have personally believed that as young as l am l am my own boss and have all the guts to contribute and change things to the way that l would like to see myself some years to come, specifically l am saying "Be the change that you would like to see some years from now". I think as youths we should hold our current leaders accountable of whatsoever they have done due to the fact that they use our resources to do their work. As youths in the community, we pay our leaders to fulfill our needs and work on our behalf and therefore l am concerned if there are still youths who think they are to be leaders of tomorrow when tomorrow will never come at all.
Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
A leader should be be focused, action oriented, idealistic, motivational, big-picture visionaries, and moreover a good leader should lead by example than anything else. Enduring setbacks while maintaining the ability to show others the way to go forward is a true test of leadership. No matter how hard things may seem, good leaders should strive to display the best and still motivate team members. However it should never be a secret that a leader is human and can make mistakes. Leaders should also give room to the people behind them to experience the test of the position and should be able to delegate.
Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already? Please tell us how.
Yes, really it has always been my will to get to be involved in a pool of discussion such as TIG so that l may also get to alert friends and and relatives on how to react to issues in their communities rather watching and leaving for the problem causers to solve on their own. Young people have been termed the "Young Digital Generation" but through this l would like to believe we learn, explore and give all the best we can.
