JOURNEY

    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Joy said: “I am very grateful for this opportunity of taking journey experiences from our great leaders and fellow scholars through this meeting. In this meeting, I realized that being a great leader most times isn’t all about you, but it includes considering others and “putting yourself in their shoes.” This was majorly emphasized by Uncle Jim, knowing that you were once like them. In addition, I also realized one has to be flexible in such a way that one should be a good listener and understanding in one way or the other. As we are different we do face different challenges in life without, at times, an intentional choice or cause. This calls us to be helpful but also being principled and ethical is highly required in what we do for better quality performance. Basically, learning from our failures is another point that calls us to give a try in all aspects of life, and when failures come this will lead us to our perfection instead of being hopeless. We should never lose hope, which is an important aspect in every journey because no condition is permanent. Thank you so much, stay blessed.”

Joy M’S CIRCLE

BIO

Growing up, Joy experienced a stable, positive, and close knit family of eight – her parents, her 5 siblings, and herself. She grew up in a community that was poor, had few school opportunities, and chronic health issues. She saw so many young people drop out of school. She also saw so many young girls get married off long before the legal age of marriage. She also saw the ways alcoholism can devastate a community. So, she knew at a very young age that she wanted a different life for herself and her family.

Joy attends the Adventist University of Central Africa, where she is studying Finance. Her dream is not only to be successful in her career, but to encourage and mentor young people, especially young girls. She wants to encourage them to pursue an education because a good education can transform a person’s life.

Outside the classroom, Joy is active in her church, singing in the choir.
