Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.
Increasing number of refugees from Somalia because of the civil strife was of great concern to me.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.
According to me, good leadership is, among many skills, shaped by good interpersonal skills, integrity and courage integrated with self awareness and ongoing desire to learn. My main perspective here is to create trust among my subject, support their initiatives and communicate with them to ensure that they are developing to attain desired growth.

Different strategies employed by the members to counteract their challenges were also inspiring in themselves. I have learnt more ways of growth and development that I employ in my group discussion and since I share a common goal with TakingITGlobal i do believe it will help me achieve my ultimate goal.
