As i turn

As i turn "a year wiser"

As I turn yet another year ‘wiser’ today, I reflect and look not just to my future, but i am giving myself the ability to think deeper into somethings that i consider very important to my generation and to my future. I meditate on this day, my special day, I think deeply of my country Cameroon, my ancestors and my family who still live there. I spent my childhood growing up this country, the land of my birth.

From this goal, a simple idea emerged: I Am Cameroon This idea has grown into a movement that was launched April 11, 2013 in Douala, Cameroon. Inspired by this simple idea, the movement → Read on

We are 3000+ Strong | IAC

We are 3000+ Strong

In the movie “300,” what captivates me is that it involves a legendary last stand by 300 committed Spartans against a teeming horde of Persian soldiers. So brave and strong are the Spartans that they skewer, eviscerate, take lives and otherwise inconvenience tens of thousands of Persians before finally falling to the weight of overwhelming numbers, all in a bid to prevent the Persians from destroying Greece. Inspired by the sacrifice of the 300, the Persians later had to face a larger Gre → Read on

Mon Rêve pour le Cameroun!!!

Lorsque j’étais plus jeune je me ventais auprès de mes amis Gabonais d’être Camerounais à cause non seulement des Lions Indomptables mais aussi et surtout parce qu’au lycée les Camerounais avaient la réputation d’être très intelligent. Oui je crois que Dieu nous a gâtés sur le plan humain en nous donnant des esprits brillants et un sol et un sous-sol très riche. Dans le département du Moungo on « crache » et ça pousse, dans la région de l’Est ont ramasse le « Fer » → Read on

My Dreams, My Decisions!!!

If there is something that we should never forget about Cameroon is the simple fact that we received Cameroon as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. However, even with everything given to us, we have refused to reap the benefits that the nation has offered us. We have to learn to appreciate what we have. Every day I ask myself why is it that we have everything in Cameroon, yet we are still very poor. Is it because we are too satisfied with who we are? Well, I am not satisfied wit → Read on

My Message, My Dreams!!!

Over the last two weeks I have thought over and over again on what to write, that will encourage Cameroonians to take ownership and responsibility for their Country. A year ago, I became part of a team of young Cameroonians who after examining the state of their Country and the challenges, decided to step forward inspire a generation towards positive change. We came to the conclusion that the changes we want to see in this beautiful Country can never be accomplished by outsiders but by ourselves → Read on
