Being a member of YOCOFOBA from its conception till date, I believe that “The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.”– President Ronald Reagan. As a young aspiring youth, I have always been self motivating and goal oriented. Always searching for opportunities to give back to the community where I come from.
I believe that everyone was born with a mission and one of my missions is to contribute positively to the growth and development of my community through YOCOFOBA. Working together as a team we are trying to put hands on deck by contributing our ideas to help young Cameroonians live a more responsible and fulfilled live.
