My asset map: Starting from my personal skills; as an asset, I am a go-getter, I know I am a strong willed person that believe nothing is unachievable once one’s mind is set to achieve it. I do not believe in relenting and I am a highly committed individual to whatever I set my mind to achieve, this I believe helped me in shaping my involvement in the third sector( i.e NGOs) though with limited skills and this has spurs me to continue to aspire despite challenges. I was able to develop my public speaking skills and leadership qualities as a young woman. I have always stood out to ensure the rights of others are not trampled upon while growing up which made me very vocal. Entering the third sector (Civil Societies) and my passion and drive to be heard on issues as affecting women, youth, children and the community at large spurred me to facilitate various developmental forums for brainstorming/ discussions. My commitment to what I do has provided and continue to provide for communities to welcome ideas and initiatives for development that I bring to them and I believe they are still my strength in sharing ideas and bringing solutions to people.
I belong to various developmental groups of interest that are of like minds and that I know are committed to ensuring women’s voices are heard.
Though, something I lack is the ability sustain relationship with those that can help push forward my initiatives, henceforth, from what I have learnt so far in this 3 weeks journey……….. I will keep a tab of such people (community leaders, local politicians, mentors and on and offline network) and follow-up on discussions.
