Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
A world that works for everyone is one of peace, love, understanding and one in which people work together for a similar or rather a related goal that does not negatively affect the wellbeing of others irrespective of gender, status or even religion.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The media as the main source of information and entertainment industry is producing movies, music videos/audios, soaps, series or any kind of novels or even news papers and magazines that do not focus on anything less than sex, money and violence. Although there are those that are up to the moral standard of the society, there are those that broadcast literature that is very obscene.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
The best way to overcome this is by focusing our mind on the younger generation so that we can have them mentored into a world of harmony. I speak about the young especially because their minds can easily be transformed compared to that of adults.
I am a student at Makerere University, Kampala. I first got ushered into leadership while in my ordinary level when I was chosen to represent my class in scripture union, from S.1-S.3 I the became a class representative to the students council body in my S.2 till when I completed my ordinary level in 2008. I then came back for my advanced level in 2009 in the same school (Makerere High School Migaadde), we then teamed up as student facilitators for a program we named Behavior AL Change Program, code named (BCP) and joined a program called Education Reach Africa (ERA Uganda). Where we set apart one hour every Thursday morning every single month of the school term before lessons, to teach fellow students following a guideline that we have been mentored on first.
This to me was one of the best time I ever had in high school because it got me in to the chance of discovering the real potential and true love and the passion that I had for the youths not only in my community but world over.
Currently am in my final year at the University (MUK) pursuing a Bachelors degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology at Makerere University main campus. I am working with a few colleagues sensitizing students in Primary and High schools mainly across northern Uganda about HIV/AIDS, Guidance and counseling, Moral Education & Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Districts of Gulu, Kitgum, Pader, Agago, Lamwo, Nwoya and Amuru.
I have a dream of being a distinguished public speaker under the mentorship of IIGL because I owe my mission to transforming a good number of young people in my community and everywhere I go as God has given, HE is giving and will continue to grant me the ability, the potential and the motivation, because raising a responsible and honorable generation is my dream.
My family for sure may not be financially stable, but that is not reason enough to hinder me from transforming lives for the better of tomorrow’s world. I know that God the father who sits on the throne up in Heaven cannot deny me my heart’s desires as long as it glorifies His name and allows his will to be done.
I was born in Gods plan to serve His will in the world and not the world to serve me in His will at all times. Secondly I would like to join the New York Film Academy and Study Bachelors Of Fine Arts In Film Making not for the love of making money and material gains but to preach a gospel that the current entertainment industry is not preaching and that is a life transforming message which involves putting back together the minds of those who feel forsaken, neglected, those who lack true love, those who are victims of violence those who have been sexually abused and the orphaned children in my capacity . I say this because today’s entertainment industry productions are majorly centered on money, sex and violence running across from music, Movies and some written literature as well.
My favorite books are; The Purpose Driven Life, The Unbroken Curses, The Bait of Satan, Rules of thumbs for business writers, Gifted hands, the power of thinking big, Think big, and rich dad poor dad among others. Movies I enjoy watching for time are; the Journey to Heaven, the Amazing Grace, Letters to God, Suing the Devil, The Writers’ Dairy, Clancy among others.
