Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
A world that works for everyone is a world in which each individual has equally rights, privileges and opportunities. A place where everyone has access to basic amenities like health facilities, education, freedom of speech and expression, etc. An enabling environment where each individual has a right to decide what he or she wants and have access to financial resources.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The greatest problem facing the world today is global poverty which has become so widespread today. The other problem is illiteracy and lack of access to educational facilities especially in the developing countries. Many people are unable to even feed well not to talk of having enough to pay for education which has become very expensive now. There is also the problem of corruption, selfishness and racism. People turn to think only about themselves and what they get or what the family members get and forget about the others.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
To solve these problems, we should learn the doctrine of synergy; that is accepting that when we work together, we can achieve more than we could have achieved as individuals. We should create an enabling environment for everyone to acquire wealth as everyone has the capacity to create wealth but lack on the enabling environment. Education if made affordable to all, it will greatly reduce the level of illiteracy and poverty as educated people will be able to explore opportunities as they come their way. Above all, if we have the fear of the Lord, we will work in the best interest of everyone and there will be no corruption, embezzlement and racism. We will all work in abnegation and towards the good of everyone.

I am Afanda Galega, a Cameroonian living in Bamenda. I come from a family of five; two girls and three boys. I graduated from High school in the year 2000 after which I took some courses in computer software and later computer maintenance and repairs. Since then, I have been working either as a computer software/hardware trainer or an IT engineer. I worked with a number of institutions like Master-Tech Computer Center-Yaounde, Digital Technology Networks-Limbe, all in Cameroon before finally returning to school in 2006 to study Business Management at the National Polytechnic Bambui-Cameroon. I graduated in 2008 with the Higher National Diploma and continued for another 2 years to obtain my BSc. in Management in September 2010.

Coming from a background like mine, I had to work and go to school at the same time to sustain myself. I worked with Resources Management Consultants as an IT technician and an Audit clerk before joining Essoka Security, one of the leading security companies in Cameroon, in July 2008. There, I served as an IT technician and later on the Payroll Administrator; a post which I hold till date. The job has been so challenging for me because I had to work and go to school at the same time. However, this has been a very enriching experience as it help me to learn to manage time and above all myself

I like reading, writing, playing soccer (which earned me the alias: “Eto’o”), traveling (of which I have not have the privilege to do much because of limited means), browsing, hang out with friends, watch movies and craft.

My goal in life is to become my boss someday. I will like to create and own a company of my own and be able to form a great of team of managers to run it. That is why I am bent on studying and improving my leadership skills at the slightest opportunity.

I have led many groups both in school and out of school, including the ex-students associations, journalism club, sports club, just to name a few. I have also attended an advanced Christian leadership training seminar some years back.

I am highly motivated young man who is willing to learn and improve his skills at any time, given the opportunity.
