Occupation: Freelance Journalist
Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
I am a global citizen that campaign for good governance and policies that will help wipe away poverty globally. As a humanitarian and development journalist, I have the opportunity to make a difference by creating a world that works for everyone.
I write to ensure that the poor masses have the basic amenities that can spur development and social change. With this, I can see a world where every youth is employed, where children have access to quality education, where people have access to clean water, where poverty is eradicated and where peace reigns
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
There are apparently numerous challenges facing the world today. Poverty is one of them. The rate of poverty globally is overwhelming. Poverty keeps ravaging countries, especially the third world countries, despite the effort being put in place by governments of federations. Youth unemployment is another world problem. Many youths who are graduates today are unemployed. This could be as a result of countries to put in place policies that will create employment for the teeming youths. In addition, lack of access to education is also a global problem. Children, especially those in Sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to quality education. Many children are also out of school. It is a big challenge to the mental and psychological development of children.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
There is need for individuals to venture into agriculture, because it was revealed that those who are living in abject poverty are those who live in rural areas. If they venture into, to an extent, they will b e able to reduce the rate of poverty. Corporate Organizations can empower people by organizing program and symposium to teach individuals skills that can make them be productive and enable them make money.
In addition, government and Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) can empower the youth financially by sponsoring small scale business ideas bring up by individuals. This can enable them start their own businesses. In terms of lack of access to education, there are apparently children in remote villages who do not have access to education. NGOs can also help in creating schools for these children since the government cannot be trusted fully to provide good education to children.
I am a humanitarian and development journalist who is committed to ensuring that the masses have access to necessary basic amenities that will bring about their growth. I love reading motivational books on leadership, positive thinking and decision making written by individuals that have contributed their quota to humanity through writing.
Kelechukwu is a dedicated, committed and aspired leader who loves making the voice of the voiceless to be heard. I love putting smiles on people that I come across. I like reading and listening to peoples’ stories and experiences, which I can learn from and put into practice in my day-to-day activities. For example, TED talks are so inspiring which sometimes, enable me do extraordinary things that ordinarily cannot be done.
My dream is to become a leader who can inspire and motivate individuals to explore and do more for the society. My dream is to become a great journalist who will bring people out of poverty by writing their plights and calling on government and corporate organizations to come to the aid of communities who lack the necessary basic amenities to survive.
I am an individual that likes travelling and meeting people. I like to network and also create favorable image for organizations that I work for/with. Public relations is also an area I find so interesting. I involve myself in public relations having received trainings in the area. Public relations has enabled me be able to communicate very well with individuals and build a very good understanding with people without difficulties.
My objective in life is to develop, inspire and help people; especially the youths to discover their potentials and gifts, and use them to better their communities and the world in general. My goal is to work in public service after I must have personally impacted positively on people in various communities.
My goal is to be a journalist that will wipe away the tears of people who are suffering. My aim is to assist to ensure that poverty is wiped away completely, that people have access to clean water; that children have access to quality education; that young people find employment and peace reigns globally. I am passionate about the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and I want to contribute immensely to ensure that the goals are met by 2030. I like movies that motivate and talk about people that have gone through difficulties in life, yet, they still made it. I like watching documentaries that show and talk about people that have contributed their quota to the social and economic development of the world.
I have participated in many projects and studies. As a public relations officer of an organization, I organized a journalism conference while as an undergraduate, to help students develop their journalism skills. I have attended leadership trainings on maximizing potentials and discovery of purpose, and the trainings have helped me enhancing my leadership skills. I am a positive thinker who believes that the problems ravaging the global world, especially the third world countries will be issues of the past. I exist to help and save humanity.
