Hi Rashid Zuberu, i am so amazed reading your biography. it seems so interesting.
My name is Atemkeng Andre from Cameroon. I holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Sociology and Anthropology with a minor in Political Science from the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences, University of Buea in 2011, where he registered outstanding results. After his graduation he had his professional training in volunteerism at Big Steps Outreach Network, a Non-Governmental Organization in the South West Region of Cameroon focusing on Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights; Community Development, Democracy and Human Right, from where he later served as a volunteer with the same organization for a year while developing his skills yet further as a strong team builder. I have a strong personality of composure and maturity. He is very intellectually mature and mentally creative from the maturity point of view. He exhibits a very critical disposition in the manner in which he interprets social phenomena and social behavioural patterns, and developed very high leadership qualities and display excellent leadership strategies and skills in group organization and group net-working. He takes initiative in problem solving. He is very friendly and likes to share his experiences and tap into the resources of others to build up a stronger and critical mind-set. He is also very generous and outgoing. I am a good resource person/volunteer when it comes to exchanging ideas and strategies in accelerating Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Development in developing countries of Africa, why not globally. He and other volunteers of Big Steps Outreach Network took the initiative to start a Reproductive Health Development Sensitization Project among the youths of the local communities of the South West Region of Cameroon.
In 2012, I enrolled into the University of Buea for a Master’s Program in Environmental Anthropology. He holds a Master of Science Degree (MSc.) in Environmental Anthropology from the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences, University of Buea, South West Region of Cameroon in 2015, where he registered outstanding results and performances as the overall best Faculty of Social and Management Science and Departmental student in the Master Programme, from the University of Buea. In 2017, he enrolled for a Ph.D programme in Sociology, Faculty of Social and Management Sciences, University of Buea. I am a member of International Non-Governmental Organizations like: the YALI Network; Global Citizenship Initiative Network and the Network for Youth in Transition.
I am a highly motivated; enthusiastic; passionate; travelled and creative graduate with practical designed skills in Community Development; Sustainable Development; volunteerism; Administration; Group Networking; Environmental Management and Conservation; Tourism; Nature and Cultural Heritage Preservation; Governance; Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR); Environmental Management; Youth in Sustainable Development; Gender Based Violence; Conflict Resolution and Peace Building; are areas of interest to him.
