Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
My vision of a world that works for everyone is where each and every person has enough food, a home and a sense of belonging; a world of peace and harmony, enfranchisement and justice. Where resources are valued, cared for, and grown, and there is generous and continuous sharing of these resources. World where each and every person discovers his/her own personal power and ability to create an individual life that works within a world that works for everyone.

What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
The most pressing problems facing the world today are global warming as it has been concerning scientists for decades, catastrophic weather and threatened ecosystems, not only is climate change real, scientists agree that humans are influencing climate change with our production of greenhouse gases, clean energy verse dirty energy. Renewable energy, energy independence, petroleum, biofuels, coal. Waste with the immediate looming problems of climate change and energy, focus has shifted away from landfill waste, but this is a serious problem. The world has largely gotten accustomed to a throwaway lifestyle, but that’s neither healthy nor sustainable. Waterways are choked with trash and modernized nation’s ship their undesirable leftovers to the developing world e.g. fashion, fast food; packaging and cheap electronics are just some of the problems. From desertification to erosion and deforestation, existing land management choices are not serving the planet or its inhabitants very well. There is very little land left that is undeveloped, either with structures or roads. Pure water is in short supply. Our global reserves of drinkable water are a fraction of 1% and 1 in 5 humans does not have access to safe water. Many people do not realize that strife has already broken out in some stressed regions. The strikes that happens around the world.

How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
These problems could be solved by playing our part to reduce waste by choosing reusable products instead of disposables. Buying products with minimal packaging will help to reduce waste. And whenever you can, recycle paper, plastic, newspaper, glass and aluminum cans, Save electricity and reduce global warming by turning off lights when you leave a room. Stop burning fossil fuels such as natural gas, coal, oil and gasoline that raises the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, as carbon dioxide is a major contributor to the greenhouse effect and global warming, plant more trees and avoid vield fires as this will result in soil erosion, with the strike that happens around we can solve it by keeping communication open, paying attention to what strikers say.

I am a great networker, I mix exceedingly well with people, Good communication and interpersonal skills – I am an Toastmaster, I am passionate about personal leadership development – I am an active JCI member; I am computer competent and conversant with Microsoft office application and quick learner, hard worker, good interpersonal skills and works well in a team and individually, I believe that nothing is impossible so i accept every challange without considering how much work it will be. I believe that by asserting myself in the small situations I will create a stronger sense of self-worth and it will also increase my ability to be assertive in other, more important situations and also setting boundaries is not just an effective time management tool; it is an act of self-respect and self-love. My greatest weakness is that I don’t like to be idle. I read a lot of personal development and motivational books, I as I believe that if you want to be in that top 20%, you need to be investing 10% of your income on your personal growth (training, books, CD’s, workshops).I have read so many books so far but will just list a few like: Think and Grow rich by Napoleon Hill, Three Signs of a Miserable Job by Patrick Lencioni, Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins, Who moved my Cheese by Spencer Johnson, The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz, etc, this is few of motivational speaker I listened to like Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, John Maxwell, Les Brown, Brian Tracy, etc.
