"Leadership is all about vision, commitment, communication, humanity, honesty, inspiration and creativity."

What inspires you?

Young people coming together to share information that affects them. I acknowledge people who sacrificed, committed, to make earth a better place to live, considering generations to come. I am inspired by people who had extra ordinary feeling for the suffering, like mother Teresa and Henry Dunant

Tell us about an issue that matters to you and how you became aware and involved.

A couple of things. The most worrying is the rapid climate change, the unreliable rainfall pattern in Africa,which makes life tricky. In my list also, the barbaric and harmful cultural practices, like Female genital mutilation, early/ forced marriages at the age of 14,and women being there to be seen and not to be heard, to an extend of being forbidden to eat certain food or parts of meat , which is nutritious and essential to human body, all this happening in 100km squared from where I live, in 21st C this worries me. Arms race, especially the nuclear weapon, poor leadership, and poverty is what matters me once again most.

Share your perspectives on what makes a good leader.

Visionary,committed, good communication skills,humane, honesty, Inspiring and creative.

Do you think TakingITGlobal can help you achieve some of your goals? Have we already?

Yes, by giving me a platform to share with the world whats happening in my country, as well as taking relevant knowledge and skills that are applicable in my country. TakingITglobal will bridge the gap, being a member it has initiated the process.
