What motivates you to be a changemaker in your community?

Coming from a displaced community in Cameroon, I have experienced firsthand the challenges and upheavals caused by the socio-political crisis. Being displaced at the age of 11 instilled in me
a profound understanding of the struggles my community faces. This personal history fuels my commitment to advocate for and implement sustainable changes that improve the lives of those affected by similar experiences.
