  • My proudest accomplishments

    My proudest accomplishment is organising a donation drive aimed at helping the less fortunate people in our community with necessities. I received help from the local humanitarian society. However, I managed and planned for the donation drive from start to finish. I was able to create social media campaigns single handedly and crowdfunding to achieve our goal. In the end the drive generated over $700 which was used to provide food, shelter, water among other necessities.

  • I'm an expert at...

    I'm an expert at remembering things.
    Unless I don't remember. But if I do, then I'm 100% right about what was said/happened and we will get into an argument if you disagree...😊

  • A personal challenge

    People face difficult situations in their life at some point of time or other. Sometimes, we do not know how to deal with hardships and overwhelming situations in our life.
    When I look back at how I overcame my hardship, I feel proud of myself and thank God for giving me the strength to overcome the most challenging period in my life.
    I have realized that my experience with my challenges helped me to grow as a person. My decision to get back to running improved my self-esteem. I understood how difficult it can be to depend on others for basic needs. I have become humbler and can recognize when another person experiences pain. I am grateful for all the blessings in my life and will never take anything for granted. My parents have been my strength, and I am grateful for all the support and encouragement they gave me.

  • Favourite books/authors/films

    First thing you should know is "You can only judge a thing as good or bad with its advantages and limitations."

    Books

    Books gives a lot of information compare to movies.But it takes too much time.The main thing is, mostly every movie is or I must say best movies are the part of any book.

    Movies

    You watch one movie a day but can't read a book a day.Movies gives you knowledge,inspiration,new thoughts,entertainment etc. in 2 or 3 hours.You know that,there are many award functions for movies not for books.Because everybody watch movies but books,4 out of 10 people use to read books.

    You can watch a movie with your friends like hangout but you can't read a book as hangout with friend.

    This generation is generation of technology.People have no time because of their lifestyle.Books are great as movies but if you have time than read a book but you have no time than watch a film.
    My favourite movie is "The pursuit of Happyness (2006). This movie truly inspired me to be strong in life and never give up on your dreams. Will Smith did an amazing job playing the role of Chris Gardner. My respect for Will Smith increased a lot after this movie.

    My favorite part dialogue of the movie:

    You got a dream... You gotta protect it. People can't do somethin' themselves, they wanna tell you you can't do it. If you want somethin', go get it. Period..
    With books, I like them to make me think. The bonus of a good laugh is highly appreciated when available.

  • Living abroad for one year

    When one feels tied up with his or her life, it is good to decide to take a break and travel abroad. ... My first vacation was within my own country Uganda (the pearl of Africa),It was the most beautiful thing to experience because the coach pulled aside and we could go out and get to see it for ourselves the source of River Nile ( longest river in the world), beautiful game reserves , Mountains (Rwenzori, Elgon, and many more).
    Given the opportunity to visit some wonderful countries within Africa, I am sure that sometime in the future I will be able to fulfill my dream, that of living in another country.

  • I always enjoy talking about...

    I always enjoy talking about life experiences, and I always tell people to live their lives by taking trains by themselves to places they've never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired.
    Enjoy every moment of life because tomorrow is not promised. 😊

  • Making the world a better place

    If everyone decided to forgive at least one person who hurt them by the end of the year, the world would be filled with people exchanging hugs and kisses, instead of words of hate and bullets.

    Love always wins .💓

  • 10 years from now

    I’m currently 26 and already truly blessed. I would say well equipped to give back to the world. What should that result in ten years from now?

    Of course by then I would like to have kids, be with my woman who I am so grateful that one day I will meet her because currently am Single..😒, and have hopefully realised a healthy, environmetal-friendly, and especially stable life style, with plenty of interactions that have impact on personal, but also macro-level, with the purpose of making the world a better place. I will be very happy, even more patient, and even more spiritual.

  • I'm excited about...

    I thrive to envibe all things that makes one a better person. By starting my day with early rise to running , readings books, stuffs, article thus harnessing my mindset, soulset ,healthset ,skillset in a balanced way so as to keep myself productive at all times.

    I believe that this life is nothing but an equation of problems which we must thrive to solve. We have all got problems. Good problems n bad problems. True happiness occurs only when you find the problems you enjoy having and enjoy solving.Happiness comes from solving problems.

    So coming on to your quest , I m always excited about any challenges n opportunities coming my way . Dealing them , failing in them , learning from them is all really that keeps me excited n something which boost my morale.

  • Something uncommon about me

    Every person is unique in its own way,In my life, I love to help others and I tried my best possible way to solve the problem of anyone who is in need of that .I love talking so much. So many of my friend love the way I talk. It's obvious that everyone didnot like this. Sometimes I tried to make my own fun for someone's smile.
    I am bit silent with someone I don't know. But once I feel free, I talked too much without making others bored.
    I respect every religion and every elders . I respect my country too.

  • It is better now

    The gap between my generation and that of my parents is vast due to the effects of technological advancement and globalization. Every generation has different values.
    Like, the people of my generation spend more free time in different ways than my parent's generation. In the earlier generation they used to have time to get involved in recreational activities, like playing sports, talking to friends or going to a park. Nowadays my generation spends a lot of time in front of the computer or watching TV, and they do not like doing activities that my parent's generation used to do.

  • As a child, I wish...

    As a kid I was unaware of the worldly troubles, never really had to deal with all these selfish humans, or hadn't even cared about what world thinks of me, I was engrossed in my own world of happiness and cheerfulness and found happiness in little things..As we grow up, we become sadder, in this world of disappointments and manipulative people.

  • A career without obstacles

    Entrepreneurship.

    If you’ve the capital for your own start up, then why not work for yourself?

    Or running a business passed down from my family Or maybe writer. Or editor. As long as I’m working on my goals daily. Time is certainly not wasted if you’re relentlessly pursuing what you need to do instead of what you’re expected or obligated to do.

  • My parents and me

    The only big difference I can vividly see between my parents and me is my thirst for adventure.
    I love to explore, meet with people from different cultures, taste their food, hear their story, and constantly experience new things.
    Unlike my parents, the idea of spending 50 years of my life in the same country, taking the same bus to go to work, greeting the same people along the way seems unbearable.

  • My feeling about the future

    Yes, I do feel positive about the future and I would say we all need to feel positive about the future. I have concerns about the future but I do try to think that everything will be okay in the end and I need to give attention from nowonwards to make my future safe because I believe we are the one shaping our destiny. Do the best you can and the leave the rest to God. Thinking positively or negatively comes within ourselves. Thinking positively brings good spirits and makes you feel happy about the future so why not think positively? The reason for me to think positive is because I have a goal and even if I achieve it or not my parents and friends would still supportive me so worrying a lot and thinking negatively is not beneficial or helpful.☺

  • I feel concerned about...

    People who make long term goals are very often disappointed when they don’t come to fruition. Life is totally unpredictable. We cannot know what is in store for us in the future.

    How many people marry thinking that they will stay together until either one of them dies? And how many are disappointed when they are signing their divorce papers? It is a fact that 50% of marriages fail, yet it is so temping to think that yours can work, even if other people have failed.
    Life can be so disappointing.
    I wonder why you should worry about the future at all if you are so happy at this point in your life. Why not make some loose plans and live for today? Life is not meant to be a grueling trial. We are here to be happy and make life happy for other people.

  • A trick or piece of advice

    Whenever life feels like it is at its worst phase and you get that feeling that you just don't want to do this anymore, just remember it's a phase of life and if you get past it and beat that feeling down with happiness you'll make it through that phase and you'll be happy you did, because just around the corner could be the next phase of life that brings so many happy times that you would have missed, so never give up always stay strong because you deserve to be happy.

  • Life regrets

    I cannot think of any regret at this time. It is due to I accept whatever happened cannot change and when I realized it was a mistake, I correct my thinking, acts, and behavior and not to repeat the same mistakes. It comes with practice and the wisdom of age. We all make many mistakes until our end of life on the earth due to we are only human and not so skilled in none mistake life; thus we continue to study and learn through our life experiences and gain the wisdom as we get older.

  • Improving the school system

    I wish the teachers would have told me and everyone else of the high importance of making connections besides your friends and keeping those connections for later on

    It’s an extremely useful thing to have once you graduate. Having lots of connections can help you get a job easier and faster, rather than only sending your CV and have them thrown into the bin along with the rest of the stack by employees who don’t even read them.

  • Over or underrated

    Most underrated: our inner knowing, intuition, ability to reflect and to create; our ability to live with a natural awareness of what matters, what connect us, our feelings, shared needs and what it means to be truly human.

    Most overrated: rational thought, logic and reason. Yes, at times it’s helpful and has enabled huge technological advances, but we rely too much on it and give it far too great an emphasis in how we use our minds and consciousness.

  • My interests in other cultures

    I believe understanding different cultures is a way to understand humans in general. I enjoy knowing about humanity and trying to piece together how we work, mentally and sociologically. Culture is a way to understand how humans can think, can live, can experience. And it’s astounding how humanity developed so many ways to do those things.
    Culture basically helps us to determine what is considered weird & “normal”, beautiful & ugly, what to believe in & what not to believe in.

    When you understand and learn about different cultures you will start to open your mind to different ideas & values, realize there is no such thing as weird or normal (Whatever you consider normal, another person might consider it weird or strange), and have a more understanding of people.

    Another reason for studying other cultures, it helps get rid of any ethnocentrism that we might have. You will start to soon realize your cultural ideas are not the only that exists in the world and whatever actions you might consider again “normal” is completely different to someone else.

  • Personal skills

    I do not know if this counts as a skill but I like to think my optimism as some sort of a skill. I am an optimist.

  • Childhood pleasures

    I loved going across the street after school to play in the lot.
    One day, we kids got off the school bus and the lot was gone. The bulldozers had come by to level it for the new town hall. Childhood doesn't last forever, but this was way too soon. We had to play in the backyard after that, with parents keeping an eye on us.

  • I recently learnt...

    I learnt that I should not assume to have so much freedom to talk about the personal matters of others, especially our friends.

    I also learnt that it is really unfair to question the personal choices and wishes of friends or anybody in general. And recently I've also learnt that love have no reason, it's only a blessings if you have love then you can feel it's value

  • I wish people knew more about...

    Sometimes I wish people would understand other people's PERSONALITY. People misinterpret other individuals’ outlook, and they assume you grumpy or sad. Subsequently, they react negatively towards your behaviour because they make incorrect assumptions. I do not think you become misrepresented, the other person’s inability to prevent understanding your personality mostly relies on the manner they feel at that point in time.

    Many times humans misinterpret other people’s behaviour wrongly and attempt to think on their behalf. You assume the other person feels depressed because they look upset. Many times we walk in the street and we think people display a rude character that prompts us to react negatively.

    The challenges people face today align with the fact that we live in a bubble focused on our personal issues. Our isolated worlds changed us in no-caring beings that present limited understanding of your neighbour’s struggles.

  • It was better before

    They had a simpler life, for my parents a more pampered one than you can afford today, they did have help and luxuries that are out of reach now unless you’re very, very wealthy and they were just well off. Women weren’t expected to do it all and do it all well, and sometimes alone. People were also more polite and observant of the things that many think of today as being too PC. Now it seems people want to know how to confront others, not get along with them, or ignore them.

  • My opinion on human nature

    Human nature is diverse. Yes, there are aspects of our nature that are both good and selfish. There are also aspects that are caring and nurturing and generous and altruistic. We are complicated critters.


    All of those things are our evolutionary heritage. Most of the things that we classify as characteristics of human nature are in fact survival traits. Things like altruism, empathy, mutual cooperation, and the like helped our species survive. Many of these tendencies are shaped and conditioned by the other great influence on human beings… Culture.

  • Something to tell the world!

    In this dynamic and fast-paced world, many thing will happen to you, for example, a circumstance in which the entire society will prove you wrong entirely for a case…in which your faults are negligible and even trying to convince them about your innocence will be a waste of time.

    Sometimes people will hurt you, even the persons you consider as your close ones, and even if you apologize them for your faults in a case where you and your closer ones are equally responsibe, they will not apologize back. Instead they will say its ok, and will make sure that might not happen again, behaving in a manner as if you have created the entire situation.

    But above all, you know you can't hate them coz they are a part of your life, and they are the ones who are giving you the valuable lessons of life, like how to deal with such situations, how to recognize people, how to deal with them, etc. Overall these experiences increases your sense of maturity.

    So, in your life, if such or similar things happen, always be true and honest in yourself, coz atleast you will be satisfied by the fact that you did nothing wrong to them. Stay happy, cheerful, love everyone, help others in their needs, and above all, be grateful for everything. whatever you’ve done with your life…whatever mistakes you’ve made…whatever achievements you’ve squandered…whatever adventures you’ve had…

    You have created something..Don’t judge yourself.😊
