Introducing myself and my journal

About Me:
Am a human rights Activist, however, by virtue of my youthfulness I focus on youth issues. The fact that youths are not represented in both formulation of policy and its implementation process made me want to do more, right now we are talking of 75% of Kenyan population not being represented in making decisions that is not only going to affect them but the future generation as well. Having been born and bred in an orphanage in the second largest slums in Kenya (Mathare), I have come face to face with the enemy within; police brutality among many other atrocities, all these directed to the youths who have no idea of a creature called "Rights". My organization Network for Youth Advocacy is here to bright the gap of human Rights abuses, the youth unemployment, among many other issues. Right now we have 6 million unemployed young people, this basically means in the year 2030 we'll have 24 million unemployed young people roaming around the streets....You don't need to have knowledge in rocket science to know that it will not be business as usual! Youths have solution to their plovers, all they need is facilitation! Although we may not go back and make a brand new start, we can start now and make a brand new ending!

My Passions:
Activism

My Challenges:
Not being able to deal with things beyond me

My Vision for the Future:
To see young people in leadership position, being able to relate or rather communicate in a language any other youth can understand

My Areas of Expertise:
Activism

Wecome to the community!

Dear Fredrick,

Hello and welcome to the community.

It sounds like you've had quite the journey, and are looking forward to continued adventures. 75 percent is not represented in political decision making? That is a very high number!

I have seen a few youth-related opportunities on www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org if you're interested in checking it out.

If you have not already, there are plenty of people here from Kenya in particular that you might be interested in connecting with, and they're listed here: http://worldpulse.com/user/directory?country=39

If you would like some additional tips on making the most of what our site has to offer I encourage you to look through our Getting Started Guide, available here: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I wish you the best of luck in your organization.

Thanks again for joining with us, Fredrick, and I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

Warm wishes,

Jennifer
