My first time at the GYDC was last year. When I was attending the program I didn’t know what to expect. I’d attended many programs last year that left me disappointed. It was either the program promised a lot but underdelivered or organization wasn’t anything anyone could be proud of. Attending the GYDC 2016 made all the difference for me and happened to be one of the best decision I took that year.
In attendance were youth from the various African countries who had the passion and desire to make an impact in the communities they lived. With this same desire, they had traveled from their home country to the GYDC to learn how they could create impact and communicate their way through systems. Interacting with these individuals, it became very clear that the problems we face in Africa have their solutions in the youth and it takes clear vision and unity of purpose to solve such problems.
Speakers for the occasion took turns to address the various challenges that are prevalent in our continent and offered the attendants the opportunities to also brainstorm on the various opportunities available for the African youth to rise up and shine regardless of all the obstacles. The excitement was palpable during the group discussions where opportunities for networking availed itself.
The people I met last year have become the cornerstone in my endeavors today. When like-minded people meet and have the right amount of desire to push, greater things happen. Those I met have been a major push in my life.
When this year’s invitation came around, I didn’t think twice before saying yes.
