I am passionate about

Inspiring others and being inspired by what other youths do both formally or informally through art and technology. This has earned me a great deal of knowledge by simply participating in group talks, meetings, personal development and one on one sharing that has made me what I am today since its two way learning. Besides being a co founder of African Art Innovations Ltd (https://www.aai-ug.com), I am the chairman, Gain Confidence Africa ( https://www.gainconfidenceafrica.org) a civil society and not for profit organization whose focus is to build a self-condiment destined generation of youths who will face tomorrow’s challenges as opportunities. My role is to supervise and coordinate administrative work, preside over meetings, field work including inspiring young people in the communities, schools, and organisations where we regularly carry out motivational and inspirational sessions with hands-on experience. Besides, i am also responsible for ensuring a smooth running of the organization. With this, i have acquired leadership and managerial skills. Daily management of company projects at African Art Innovations Ltd, like meeting new clients, initiating new ideas and meeting colleagues at Gain Confidence Africa to discuss the way forward on young people and youth empowerment. In the interest to explore and learn more about African Art, Cultures and Languages, I have had the benefit of tour and travel in almost the entire East African Region and partly in Europe and this has enabled me to appreciate cultures, customs, and traditions.
