youth united for the promotion of community empowerment & Development (yupced) Liberia
What inspires you?
What inspires me alot is how young people have been treated in my own country Liberia. I according to recent census conducted in 2008, Liberia had about 3.5 milliom people with about 60% of this population been youth. Based on this, young people gradulating from unversities without a hope of getting job to do for temselves. this is a problem that we faced as a youth in this nation liberia. In this direction, I feel that life in this nation is so hard on we the youth.
Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
What really matter to me is that our leaders down play youth and only care about that family. I became awaer of this when I and Two of my friends strated to put the young people together in our community. We fine it hard because there was no financial support and lock of technolgy support too. this cause us a problem and we are finig it hard to carry on our job. I haven been Electronic Enigeering student and always on the internet, I feel bad when hear about how other youths are leanding in their country. Majotry of us the young people in Liberia are fining it hear to lean and practice what we learn in colleges.
Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
A good leader is a unifiter, he/ she must put people together to achive. Good leader always care about his /her citizens and always feel that they are procted under the laws of that nation. Good leaders always think about the feature of the young people in his / her country. Good leaders should always listen to the citizens and try to help them in what they are asking for in order for them to live a better life.
