My passion is to enter the business framework and to gain credible experience in the corporate world to further enhance my prospect of establishing my own business. I am particularly interested in dealing with consulting and any business management form, as I believe it remains a centric tool for being able to conduct myself in the workplace, as well as gaining valuable information of expected requirements and potential partnerships in the foreseeable future. My long-term goal and aspiration is to pursue a career in Project Management by which I desire to help empower and uplift communities in Southern and Eastern Africa respectively. I wish to target areas which are prone to violence lack financial support from surrounding areas and places that are rooted in my family background. I have a strong passion for giving back to the underprivileged and help make an impactful change in their lives, and through project management and greater emphasis on projects that help the disadvantaged communities it remains at the epicenter of my objectives. Aiming to reduce poverty and make the world we live in a better place for everyone, while achieving my business goals remain my main objective. With East African background, I believe it to be highly advantageous for my communication ad relations going forward.
