This new group of young bloggers from Tanzania is made up of 3 girls and 3 boys, all coming from 6 different secondary schools of Tanzania. They have been interviewed prior to their selection, then got oriented on article writing and finally devoted to be posting articles at the page regularly.
This is done in collaboration with UNA Tanzania. The main purpose of UNA Norway to extend this program to the young people of Tanzania; is to help young people of the both UNAs and the world at large to understand the importance of international cooperation, and encourage them to be active participants in the world society.

Due to the challenge of global injustice in relation to gender, environmental pollution, poverty, HIV/AIDs, political and social conflicts, I’m very enthusiastic to tell the world that we are the ones to address these problems and bring change.
As a member of UNA Norway & Tanzania youth panel blog, I expect to give my opinion on global and social challenges facing the younger generation; provide updates on African-youth related affairs and suggest youth-based practical measures to take.

It’s my dream to end up in one of the social development carriers; I will be happy if I become a lecturer at the university, working with United Nations or becoming an International business woman
I am so much interested in United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) since it gives the world, an international framework to development for all, MD Goals address the most important issues and African fundamental challenges i.e. gender issues, education, disease control and prevention, poverty eradication, hunger and environmental sustainability. This is the area of my interest since these are things that I have been wishing to deal with in my life. Youth panel blog is my best platform to air my views.

My dream is to become a good leader, in an authoritative position where I can easily deal with system problems. As far as I know, most of African countries suffer a lot, and possibly, it is because of the leadership systems. So, I also hope to use this youth panel blog platform to give my opinion on how leadership system should reflect justice and humanity.
With international affairs; United Nations insists on human rights but of the rights have not been taken serious enough, there is a need of putting more deliberate efforts to bring about a true sense of international interest. I’m looking forward to give my opinion about this on the blog.
My hobbies are reading books, watching and playing football (Soccer) and swimming.
