Bill is a 20-year-old changemaker from Liberia. He works to help solve the issue of child labor in his community. He wants to raise awareness on the fact that children are the future leaders of a country and how important it is for them to go to school. We asked him some questions on his activities. Here’s what he had to say.
How did you find out about our Changemakers Program? I found out about the changemakers program when I decided to use my potential for the better good. I started to look for a program to achieve my Goals and it eventually led me to this program, which allows you to bring forth your ideas.
What inspires you to be a changemaker? The phrase, “LETS MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE” inspired me to become a Changemaker. I challenged myself. Indeed, in order to make this world a better place, we all must do something. I believe Volunteerism makes a huge impact.
What challenges did you encounter during your changemaking activities? Some challenges I faced, but that I have now overcome, are getting my constituents believe in my dreams, bring them onboard, and getting my message resonated.
What is your biggest dream? My biggest dream is TO MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
What advice would you give to other children that want to become changemakers? I want to encourage other Changemakers to keep their heads up and consider challenges and difficulties as steppingstones towards their dreams. Take your goals as destination and consider breaks and hinges as checkpoints to thoroughly examine yourself and see if you’re still focused.
