Favourite memory of the Award:
The national expedition in March 2022 where our special guest was Prince Edward. This was one of the best moments in the award. He really inspired us on doing the award. I remember him personally asking me what do per take on your skill part and he told me to continue with the same passion to continue making an impact to myself and also to the community. He assured us continuous support for the award. On that day we planted over 100 trees to help curb desertification.

Tell us the story behind your photo:
Climate change is one of the challenge facing most countries in the world. Which has led to famine and drought causing death of both wildlife and people. In our previous adventurous journey to expedition I saw the real impact of climate change where children were Scrabbling for food and water because of it scarcity. After the expedition I decided to be planting 2 trees per week and collecting un decomposable waste material which are not well managed and also educate people the impact of climate change and possible solutions. Through my social media accounts I have spread the gospel of # plant one tree for the future. Also in partnership with the LU environment club we have mobilized students in the university to help in planting of trees.# let's start by you planting one tree today.
