How do you motivate the youths living in developing world for the better future?
I motivate youth through various ways. Firstly, I use art to motivate them, specifically poetry. Through my poetry I point out stereotypes that people have of developing countries and show youth how they can change them. I also portray the potential of our generation through my poetry which I have shared on a TEDx stage, in collaboration with another poet. I also ensure that I frequently share opportunities on my social media pages. I always urge people to apply for these opportunities and tag them in relevant opportunities. Moreover, through Project Excel we aim at reaching out to the youth who are attending secondary school and those who want to start up tertiary education or pursue business and entrepreneurship endeavors. Through this organization, I am able to portray leadership as I empower young people to unleash their full potential. This allows me to portray selflessness and a vision for change that benefits the community more than it benefits me. It also allowed me to interact with people in a positive way as I used my own personal journey to develop a positive outlook towards life so I felt the need to pass that on to other people in my community.
