University Professor-Taught Teen Expresses Gratitude

By Leon Mageto, 14, Nairobi, Kenya

rwanda's gini sheja and kenya's leon mageto during the training in nairobiI felt honoured and was greatly humbled to have the opportunity of being taught Camera Techniques, Lighting, Sound and Editing by university professors. And this in my early teens; those are memories I will forever treasure.

We, the children, also explored our talents in scripting and acting in a play called Kiswahili Saves East Africa; big up to the entire group of children who made the play a great success. I will always treasure the great moments we shared during the training and in future.

I enjoyed the superb facilities of the hotel, especially the warm swimming pool, executive and presidential suites, and the various delicious meals served in the Restaurant.

I look forward to attending a similar training in any of the four other five-member East African Community: Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
