  1. When given this chance to attend the conference it will be a big impact to me since horn of Africa requires a lot of socio-economic and political change that can comprehensively be achieved when the youth are part and parcel of decision making. This is because the youth themselves are not conscious themselves and therefore achieving self-determination is not yet possible. It is on this premise that my change because of what I will have achieve from the training will be of value to my fellow youth in Somaliland.

    Comprehensive change can start with one person and finally its realized to many.

  2. Its my ambition to be one of the material to secure the world so as I seen this chance I just wanna use effective and efficiency to make sure there is harmony and peace of my country and all over the world.

  3. With background in criminology and security studies, and currently an attachee at AVSEC Kenya(aviation security), i have always worked towards being exposed to interpol and learn new ideas and also provide my skills. Insecurity being a thorn in the flesh in not only Kenya-and East Africa but also globally. I believe with the chance to work with interpol, we will be going down the right path in terms of security and policing

  4. it is a time of ensuring there is peace and harmony all over the world I will collaborate with other instutions like police force
    which are dealing with the security issue to provide education to the society through seminers concerning with security issue.
