Inspire someone !

Everyone can Inspire Someone

I think anyone can inspire someone as I do too. Well I believe I go out of my way to help young people avoid the land mines I crossed when I was much younger. Landmines around their education, career and personal life. About coaching and mentoring, I would say they both are ways of helping someone to get better at something by prompting them to use their own skills, ask the right questions and think for themselves. The only difference is that coaching is short term while mentoring is for longer periods. I support coaching and mentoring for development because I think young people now are surrounded by the raw material they need to move from point A to point B. They just need someone to help them see the big picture and to get their brains thinking in the right direction. Now that is something not every youth has access to.

What advice can you give to youths with regards to their future personal and community goals? Hmm, you know I like dealing with young people on a case by case basis because they are all different, with different dreams and aspirations and skills sets. However, a general advice is for them to take upon themselves to be the change they wish to be. This is the first step towards being a young change maker. Not to only see problems but to ask themselves, what can I, in my little corner do to make this problem lessen. May be lessening it in their neighbourhood, then from there the idea to do it at large scale will come.

Secondly, I would advise youths to take advantage of the technology benefits they have. With one’s mobile phone, a master’s degree or several short courses can be gotten in the most prestigious Universities in the world. With a tool called Google, a young lady can learn to become a master cake maker. So instead of looking for a god father to push things for them or look for money to bribe themselves into higher education institutions they can push themselves to the level they want to become with their own smart phones. I would tell them, take example from someone like Noela, and many like her who have learnt to use social media to boost their small actions to international levels. Chatting is not bad, but one should learn to know how to aim for what will make them grow.  Visiting YouTube is good, but creating a YouTube account to share short videos on a small project on community development is better.
