My Ghana visit

As an ambassador for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), I had the privilege of being invited to the African Youth SDG Summit in Accra, Ghana, to make a presentation, particularly goals 5 and 16, “Gender Equality and Peace” and “Justice and Strong Institutions”, which goals I represented under |RepYourGoal. I felt esteemed and recognised for my work, because I had, previously been disappointed when I failed to make it to New York for the UN Youth General Assembly in August, 2017. I have always been committed to shielding and shouldering women and ensuring a fairer and just society for all and I was excited to have such an international platform to talk about the very things that set my heart on fire.

Africans take pride in their traditions. But for Amon Matthew, the African tradition meant absolutely nothing to him. Just when he was seven years of age, he opted to learn the foreign culture. He read and watched Spanish books and movies. Within a short period of time, Matthew taught himself to speak Spanish fluently. The language earned him friendship with Jean Chamberlain because she was in awe to see an African boy speaking Spanish. Through Chamberlain, a Canadian doctor, who headed the Save the Mothers programme at Uganda Christian University for a decade, Matthew won the friendship of a small Canadian community at the university.
