As a young female Rwandese who has lived and studied in Kenya, Sudan, Rwanda and England, I have been exposed to many different cultures and political perspectives throughout my life so far. This experience has sparked my interest in Politics and culture.

Over the years, I have observed poor economic and political policies set by certain leaders in different parts of the world. In the midst of the media and the people questioning these leaders, the youth can sometimes be forgotten. Whilst it is true that people have to be made accountable for their actions, we also need to know what our future leaders want and what they think should be done to improve their country.

My dream is to become a Political journalist. To make this a reality, I have started an online blog entitled 'The Youth of our Time'. In this program, I interview youth from varied backgrounds all over the world in order to have in depth discussions about the current political, economic and social world events.

Link to 'The Youth of our time' will be posted soon.
