Blog » Business » ULUK- EPi 1.jpgLast week I was invited by Ambassador Barzun to attend the Town Hall Speech and Q&A with President Obama together with 500 other young Leaders. Due to reasons beyond my control, I could not attend, however this week I was part of an interactive workshop he held for Young Leaders in UK (YLUK) focusing on U.S foreign & Domestic policy. 

What an enlightening workshop! In the short space of time we had, the Ambassador covered condensed versions of topics of frustration/concern/confusion including:

Police brutality, Impact of Religion: Abortion debate; Private healthcare in US; Middle East policy; Oppression of minority groups; Global health; North Carolina policy on LGBT; The role of Media on racism & inclusivity (Donald Trump); Gun laws; & Climate change. 

He also highlighted the values, freedom & opportunities that are all part of the American dream, as we were focusing on America.

YLUK shares the same principles and values as JCI, giving young people a voice that empowers them to create positive change in communities. 

I am making the most out of development opportunities in JCI by actively participating in events held by partner organisations such as YLUK and exchanging value with them through promoting and supporting each other's events.

Without JCI and its relationship with YLUK, I would not have had the opportunity to be invited to meet President Obama and also network with Ambassador Barzun and all the wonderful like-minded young Leaders. JCI is surely a game-changer for me and I would like to encourage any young person reading this, to be part of this awesome global network of active citizens.

As a JCI London2Ghana project director this year I am really excited to have with me an amazing team and really great people that are happy to help to create a positive impact education by delivering computers for pupils in Ghana. 

For us having a computer is something so normal as we can't imagine life without it, but for a kid in Ghana that means access to knowledge and education in a well connected world, and means making possible his dream to become a doctor, a journalist, a teacher. 

London2Ghana JCI team is working hard to deliver interesting events that help us to raise money for kids education. Get a new skill and do good! is the motto of our first series of events. 

Our previous event that has been a real success last week with amazing feedback from our participants is How to start your own business while still working organized in collaboration with our friends from SkillsGym.

The next event is already scheduled  on 4th May : The authentic you! How to keep your authenticity while telling your story. Ingrid who is the founder of Women With Voices will teach us how to become confident in public speaking and be authentic.

"I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I've become. If I had, I'd have done it a lot earlier."  Oprah Winfrey

If you are keen to develop a new skill in public speaking and also help us to fulfill a kid's dream to become a doctor, you can book your ticket here http://bit.ly/1W7anQe  and join us on 4th May.
