My Success Is Defined by Kindness

My name is James. I’m 27 years old and a Development Practitioner living in Mzuzu, Malawi.  

My career involves working with people in rural communities. Most of the people I work with are poor and live on less than a dollar a day. All of my childhood life, I wished to work as a banker. However all this changed when I volunteered to help with children and young people with mental problems just to pass time. I loved working with children and young people. That work that summer changed my life’s perceptions. I felt fulfilled with the change that my work brought in the lives of children and young people I worked with.

Thus I changed my career direction towards development so I can work with people in need.

I am a different person and I like what I have become. My success is defined by the acts of kindness, the changes and the lives I impact in my day to day work.

I founded and am running Centre for Youth and Development, a nonprofit with a focus on children and young people through which I am sowing seeds of kindness.
