WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO IN 2030?
I’ll work on poverty in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. That's where I'm from - and I'm telling you, the ministry is only doing things that are good for themselves. The local villages really are forgotten, and agriculture is failing. When I was ten years old it was the worst - we just didn’t have any food. Really hard. Just... really hard. I can't talk about it.
But now I'm volunteer at the Baha’i community - which has changed a lot. I think differently now. I don’t have to think like when I was ten - just thinking about your hunger, about this moment only. It's so loaded with shame - to not afford thinking of more than what you get to eat.
And so of course that plays a part in what I want to do. When I get back, I've been thinking on working on help build up agriculture in Congo. So that someone don't just have to think about themselves. Then that’s what I'll need to feel better; if that can help even just the minimal amount of people think about more than food.
