Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
There are two constants in this world change and conflict. My vision of a world that works is a world where everyone is open to change and is able to understand change and a world where people understand that there will always be conflict and that the best way to handle conflict is through dialogue. A world filled with individuals that believe in excellence and strive to be better in everything and not at the expense of others.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
In my part of the world the most pressing problem is lack of good education. There are a lot of uneducated people in Africa which leads to poverty, frustration and finally the people are pushed into criminal activities. The few that have been educated have been given an education tailored to administrate and not to produce so we see young graduates seeking for jobs and obviously there are no jobs available for everyone they also end up frustrated and some turn back to a life of crime. The second most pressing problem in the world is greed and this cuts across all nations and ethnicity. There are a lot of greedy people in the world today that are trying to amass all they can at the detriment of others this leads to corruption and tyranny.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
To solve these problems, we have to first create more schools and give more opportunities to the less privileged to acquire an education by granting scholarships and reducing the cost of education all over the world. We have to sensitize the populace of the needs and benefits of education. we also have to improve our educational curriculums teaching the students to be more productive than administrative therefore harnessing the qualities within the individual and directing them to the right fields were they can excel. Through proper education at the teenage levels we can also be able to decrease the tendency for people to be greedy by giving them instructions in morality and instilling in them a love for humanity and improving their self value.
