32 and Counting…

January 23, 2015 3 comments

Profile_Pic_2012It’s my birthday; I am 32 (getting better, not older). I am elated. I received many messages YOU all sent and my slight regret is in not being able to thank everybody personally.

Today, I choose to share with you my birthday wish. I wish for a Cameroon where Cameroonians focus on what unites and not what divides. Where we do what is right and not what is convenient. A country where collective interests are prime over individual interests

This I cannot accomplish alone, but I can solicit your assistance because as you all expressed your desire to see me happy, this is what shall make me happy. Join me and together we shall inspire Cameroonians to bring about positive change. Join me and we shall engage in a tireless effort to ensure there is social justice in our neighborhoods, communities and businesses. Join me and we shall ensure the 50 years ahead are better than the 50 years passed. Let’s make this our reason for living.

Let’s rally like-minded people and encourage them to challenge the status-quo irrespective of where they are. Let’s inspire many more people all over that the world; that change happens because people like us make it happen. Let’s be responsible enough so that our countrymen can trust us with their hopes and aspirations. Let’s tell our children that henceforth we are resolving to lay a solid platform for them to crawl, walk, run and fly. This mission of ours is not political, if anything we are non-partisan, it is about a cultural change, a change in mentality of the people. It is a simple idea which says – I am Cameroon, you are Cameroon, we are Cameroon, we are responsible to provide solutions to the challenges of our beloved country.

I remain grateful to you for your encouragements, mentoring and affection. I resolve to accomplish, if not take this mission to greater heights and for this, I will need the “many more years” you wished me.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE KIND BIRTHDAY WISHES, THE MISSION CONTINUES.

Two Fresh Courses

July 23, 2014 Leave a comment

Next Training Courses

Training 1: Effective Meetings

Innovations in the field of information technology changed the way people interact and communicate. A century ago we still had to meet face-to-face to communicate and only a few decades ago new ways of communicating without meeting were introduced but in some cases, human interaction is still necessary to communicate effectively. It is part of the human nature to meet other humans for many reasons and at the local level of JCI, meetings still have a great impact in decision-making and sharing experiences, but times have changed and we need to rethink the way we conduct meetings at the local level.

What this course proposes is that JCI Local Organizations must be creative when organizing meetings. Because each Local Organization is different and every year can be different, local officers must decide what type of meeting is more effective for the members and the organization. While in one hand humans have a need to meet person-to-person, in the other hand, innovations have proven that there are other ways of achieving the same results.

Training 2: Effective Communications

Being able to communicate effectively is the most important of all life skills. Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another. How well this information can be transmitted and received is a measure of how good our communication skills are. Developing your communication skills can help all aspects of your life, from your professional life to social gatherings and everything in between.

The ability to communicate information accurately, clearly and as intended, is a vital life skill and something that should not be overlooked. It’s never too late to work on your communication skills and by doing so improve your quality of life.

My Message, My Dreams

April 23, 2014 3 comments

Fellow Country men

Profile_Pic_2012For the last twelve months I have been spreading a new message to Cameroonians. A message aimed at igniting positive change in Cameroon. Now more than ever before have I felt it is time for you and I to unite for change. Now more than ever before is the moment to take our destiny in our hands and build the country we want and not the country we have. We did not sign up for this, we know that those who fought for our independence did not sacrifice their blood, sweat and tears for this. We know our children will not forgive us if they mature in the Cameroon of today, tomorrow.

Everywhere I have been; I have told Cameroonians that nobody will change our country for us. I have made them understand that even if someone wanted, we would not let them. Why? Because our history reminds me; we are a proud nation, an intelligent citizenry, an enlightened people. People who dare to do.

Working with a group of young and talented Cameroonians, we have rallied like-minded people and called on them to challenge the status quo and inspired many more Cameroonians all over that the world; that change happens because people like us make it happen. That change has come to Cameroon and that our countrymen can trust us with their hopes and aspirations. We are telling our children that a year ago (and henceforth) we resolved to lay a solid platform for them to crawl, walk, run and fly.

I dream of a Cameroon where the feel of faded glory and hope no longer exists. Where Cameroonians focus on what unites and not what divides. Where we do what is right and not what is convenient. Where national interests prime over individual interests which are often disloyal in nature.

I may not live to see this, whatever the case, haven taken the lead and risen to the occasion, that of assuming responsibility for the destiny of my Country would constitute the apex of self-gratification and then would I rest in peace.

Every generation has its mission, this is ours, join in. A generation that betrays its struggle destroys the future of its people.

I am Cameroon

Solving Community Challenges depend on us!

April 2, 2014 1 comment

I attended the first National General Assembly of Junior Chamber International (JCI) Cameroon this past weekend in Bamenda, my home city. The general assembly is a forum where JCI members meet, report on local activities, benefit from training opportunities, socialize and above all do something positive in the community that hosts them.

Invited to Bamenda in two capacities, first as main Trainer for the JCI Impact training and then to present I am Cameroon, the movement that engages Cameroonians to accept responsibility for the future of Cameroon. I was fired-up for a hectic Saturday.

JCI Impact is a half day training course that teaches JCI members, through Community Needs Analysis to identify community challenges and provide sustainable solutions. I had eight participants who resolved to lead a forum to collect data and propose sustainable solutions to Cameroon’s number one problem, corruption. They planned to involve the JCI Cameroon National board and push that it becomes a National JCI flagship project that will run in every local organization. This idea stemmed from the fat that during the training, I mentioned that in more than two decades of our existence in Cameroon, JCI Cameroon had nothing to lay claim as something positive influenced by the organization. It got members thinking and it is an obvious reality. A reality that pushes us to change the next couple of decades.

Later that day, I granted a 40-minute interview to RUSH FM accompanied by Takor Takor and Marius Siewe, members of JCI Cameroon and Champions of I am Cameroon. The host Mr. Fozo had pertinent questions about I am Cameroon, the movement, its philosophy, its network, conditions for membership, how it is financed and the upcoming plans. The interview was exciting given that it was done at a restaurant were ordinary citizens who came to have launch had the chance of following us live and off-air. Consequently, we enrolled two supporters who promised to help the National I am Cameroon Committee organize the official launching in Bamenda next month.

That evening, I presented I am Cameroon to JCI Members. Prior to my presentation, JCI members had been treated with a video showing images of illustrious world personalities like Mandela, Gandhi, Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King Jr., etc. And each time these pictures were displayed I observed them released happy roars as if to praise the greatness of these individuals.

I started by asking members to reflect on my observation. I Said “I noticed you clapped when the images of Mandela, Martin Luther and Gandhi were displayed”, they confirmed, I continued “Ask yourselves, will my displayed image someday raise as much euphoria?” The room went silent but a few courageous members said “yes” and then I told them I am Cameroon was inspired by an observation that more than 50 years after independence, the dreams of the founders were eluding Cameroonians. I told them, we were done waiting for someone else to fix our future and that we are taking ownership of our country. We know that nothing will change until we change ourselves. And lastly, that I Am Cameroon is a movement of citizens who believe in creating a better future for Cameroon by taking ownership and taking action. Finally that I am Cameroon gave them the chance to create as much euphoria. They marveled.

I called on them to support the movement and take action because as complicated as it may seem, the change we seek depends on us and it starts with us. I was referred to as “I am Cameroon” the rest of that night. I marveled as well!
