Basing on the trip to Narobi for the Ashoka youth venture camp, I learned and understand very many things.

1.DISCUSSION
I met successful  Ashoka fellows who discussed with us some of the projects they were doing and at the age they started their venture, i met fellows from Nigeria, Kenya and Rwanda
They also discussed with us how we can develop our project, challenges facing individual’s project as well as some solutions, we met and shared with Youth Venturers from different countries and i got to know the project they were doing
As pertaining the four pillars of change making:
1.LEADERSHIP
we discussed qualities of a good leader which i cannot noiw list them, the types of a leader, challenges leader may face and how to tackle them
2. TEAM WORK
team work is very essential  as working together produce a better outcome than personal working and decision making
3. EMPATHY
the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
4. ENTREPRENEURSHIP

5. STORY TELLING
story help to express inner feelings and emotion and make it easier for some one to unsterstand you than telling going straight to the point
