Andrew Benson Greene

by Memunatu from Sierra Leone

I CHOOSE ANDREW BENSON GREENE AS MY HERO BECAUSE OF CERTAIN QUALITIES OR POTENTIALS HE HAS, THAT MAKES ME FEEL THAT HE CAN BE CHOSEN AS A HERO LOCALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY.

HE GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF SIERRA LEONE WITH ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS. ANDREW HAD ALSO WORKED WITH INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS SUCH AS WAR CHILD CANADA, IEARN USA, PLAN NETHERLANDS, TAKING IT GLOBAL, CARE SIERRA LEONE, SLANGO SIERRA LEONE, DEFENSE FOR CHILDREN INTERNATIONAL SIERRA LEONE[DCI], TO NAME BUT FEW.

THIS YOUNG MAN HAS BEEN WORKING TIRELESSLY FOR THE PROGRESS OF YOUTH IN SIERRA LEONE. HE HAS ALSO PRESENTED SEVERAL NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL WORK SHOPS THROUGH THE HELP OF ITC, SHARING HIS EXPERIENCE WITH MEMBERS AROUND THE GLOBE, TAKING ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS, PEACE BUILDING, CHILD SOLDIERS, AND MANY MORE IN ISSUES TO HELP IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD.

HE HAS ATTENDED SO MANY CONFERENCES. LET ME JUST HIGHLIGHT SOME OF THE COUNTRIES, CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, BEIJING CHINA, HOLLAND, UK, CANADA AND MANY MORE. ANDREW GREENE IS A MAN WITH VAST EXPERIENCE, ESPECIALLY IN THE AREA OF DEALING WITH YOUTH ---DEVELOPING THEIR TALENTS. HE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB IN SIERRA LEONE, LEARNING ABOUT COMPUTING COSTS A LOT OF MONEY, BUT WITH THE HELP OF THIS YOUNG AND DEDICATED HERO, WE ARE NOW ENJOYING THIS FACILITY WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT.

AS FOR ME, I WAS WALKING IN THE WILDERNESS WITH NO GUIDE, BUT I THANK GOD FOR SENDING ME A SAVIOUR, NOW I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT I DO SO MANY THINGS USING ICT AND I AM ALSO DEVELOPING MY SKILLS IN MUSIC, VIDEO, MEDIA AND MANY MORE. REALLY, ANDREW GREENE HAS DONE A LOT FOR THE YOUTH OF iEARN SIERRA LEONE.

FOR A VIVID EXAMPLE, HE IS A PATRIOT OF SIERRA LEONE, BY EXTENDING HIS LIFE AND TIME TO CONTRIBUTE IN REBUILDING THE LIVES OF SIERRA LEONEAN'S YOUTH THROUGH THE USE OF ICT IN ORDER TO REGAIN THEIR LIVES FROM HEALING AND TRAUMA. AFRICAN LEADERS, AFTER ACQUIRING QUALITY EDUCATION, THEY CHOOSE TO GO AND FIND HAPPINESS IN ANOTHER MAN'S LAND, FORGETTING TO SAVE THEIR NATIVE LAND. BUT ANDREW GREENE HAS BROKEN THIS KIND OF IDEA, CONNECTING YOUTHS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD, ANDREW BELIEVES IN THIS IDEA AND IDEOLOGIES. WHAT HE HAS DONE I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT HE HAS A BIGGER DREAM FOR THE YOUTHS OF THIS NATION, AND THE WORLD AT LARGE. MY HOPE IS TO SEE THIS KIND OF QUALITIES IN HIS FOLLOWERS AND IN OTHERS WHO CAN HELP BUILD AND MAKE A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL THE PEOPLE.

ABOVE ALL, ANDREW WAS AWARDED A SCHOLARSHIP RECENTLY FOR DEDICATED LEADERSHIP WITH OTHER SCHOLARS FROM DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN CANADA. I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT THIS JUST THE BEGINNING, TRUST ME. I SAY "BRAVO" TO MY HONOURABLE HERO ANDREW BENSON GREENE. KEEP IT UP.
