“Africa has untouched potential and many resources, one of its richest is its youth population. Growing up amongst ingenious and capable youth, that created opportunities in the face of adversity, instilled in me a purpose to support those that can make a difference. I firmly want to play a key role in cultivating this potential in young people both, socially and professionally to achieve the true potential of African sustainable development.
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others’’. -Mahatma Ghandi”
