Who are you? (Here, what do you want people to remember you for? Your name, the course you are doing, and a personal slogan)
I’m Buay Moses G, a University of Juba computer science student. I appreciate basic things and am a calm person. I also love technology and volunteering in the community.
My job in technology started long ago. I recall that our home in Sudan had a lot of devices, so I spent a lot of time figuring out how to utilize them, which turned into a passion. I completed most of my schooling outside the country and recently came back in 2019, and I don’t want to go elsewhere.
I discovered the Go Girls ICT Initiative in 2022 and applied for mentorship. Since then, many beautiful things have occurred, for which I am grateful. Thanks.
What inspired you to be part of the mentorship with GoGirls ICT Initiative?
Science and technology interests. Assisting and instructing others, exchanging knowledge, and experimenting. My desire to make a difference in my community motivated me to sign up for the mentorship.
What did you learn from the mentorship of the girls in Primary and secondary school?
Empathy. I’ve grown to feel and comprehend what the other person is experiencing. Now, this supports my decision-making.
Recognize that every person is unique. There is no one size fits all solution.
I’ve discovered that to change someone else, and I must first alter myself.
What memorable experiences do you have of the girls, or what excited you about the girls?
Mercy and Vibia, two equally smart primary school kids, had one of my most memorable interactions. Programming in Scratch was being learned.
Although they did well in class, they had one flaw: they had no sense of teamwork and preferred to work and study alone. We, the mentors, recognized this issue and developed a resolution. This applied to any activity in which we divided them into teams and demanded their participation.
Unexpectedly, towards the end of our last training session, we could see a significant change in how they interacted with their classmates. However, there were times when it was busy.
What next for you, or what are your aspirations?
I want to become a programmer and create various software, including websites and apps.
In my community, I want to be a changemaker who finds solutions to problems.
Finally, I’m excited to mentor and motivate my mentees and other young people to grow into better versions of themselves.
