“Curious Minds has groomed and built my capacity to be a better advocate on a wide range of policy, population and development issues. With the research, communication and writing skills gained, I have been able to put my thoughts in writing or blogging.”
I have more experience in public speaking, presentation, broadcast journalism, volunteerism and networking. My remarkable moments with Curious Minds has been our community outreaches in the nooks and crannies of the Central Region as well as when we coordinated the 2012 Central Regional Youth Colloquium ahead of the 2012 Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
Since I joined Curious Minds, apart from the learning, I’ve been exposed to so many opportunities. So I’ve had the chance to attend many important events and I’ve learnt a lot. For example, I served on the National Organizing Committee of the 7th African Conference on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights that took place in February 2016. As an adolescent on such a committee, I think it’s a big plus for me. I wouldn’t have been able to do all of these if I hadn’t joined Curious Minds.
“Since I joined Curious Minds, my voice has been heard, I’ve been part of change makers and I’ve participated in policy making forums. My capacity has been built significantly”
I have built myself confidence as an individual since I joined Curious Minds. Public speaking has also been one of the things I’ve been able to learn. I also built my skills and capacity in terms of journalism because joining Curious Minds influenced my decision to study journalism at the university.
Curious Minds has really done a lot in my life. It has equipped me as an adolescent - the confidence, how to speak in public, knowing my rights, how to advocate and all that. Curious Minds has really helped me in so many ways.
The first day I joined Curious Minds was when I met a group of young people who were in the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation radio studio preparing for a Curious Minds programme. I was lost when I got there. These were young people just like my age at the time talking confidently and criticising the government of Ghana openly. One of the major motivations was seeing how these young people were changing the world through advocacy. I had always wanted to change the world but I believe Curious Minds offered me that great platform.
