I am passionate about

Actions

In 2015, I came to a sharp realization and moral sense of purpose which made me believe that when you give children the cutting-edge skills and tools to speak with confidence, you offer them a springboard to a world of broader opportunities. Their purview about life’s great possibilities is altered for the better. Base under this premise, I co-established a radio and leadership organization called Agents of Change. A formidable and reliable partner of UNICEF, DFID, Orbis Africa and the Children’s Radio Foundation of UK. At the age of 24, I serve as Executive Director of Agents of Change, UNICEF Climate Ambassador, Global Youth Ambassador of The UK based Children’s Radio Foundation, CEO of Zambia’s first ever KIDS FM Radio, Zambian Consultant for the Swedish Malmo City Council, and an Alumni of the University of Zambia, Cambridge University Institute for Continuing Education UK and the University of Delaware in the US. I recently co-founded a company called VANTAGE VR which uses virtual reality technology to humanise climate change experiences in a classroom in Sub-Saharan Africa. In the past 2 years, I have worked with the world’s greatest change-makers including Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel, Former US President Barack Obama, Irish first female President Mary Robinson and I have given keynote addresses at Oxford University and New York University among others.
