David is a 17 year old student studying Geology at the University of Buea and is currently one of the youngest interns in the CameroonFDP office. He shares his experience with CameroonFDP.
Participating in CameroonFDP activities for the past five years has made me a confident and determined student. During my humble days as a form three student in GHS Nkamlikum, I met with Mr. Diony Collins, who then was in charge of the CameroonFDP after-school sessions in GSS Nkamlikum (now GHS Nkamlikum). He saw leadership qualities in me, encouraged me, and gave me the opportunity to find strength in leading my peers. I was soon helping him run sessions and I can remember a few times when he asked me to take control and run sessions for the day. Meanwhile, he watched me and corrected me if needed. That year, we came in second at the competitive end-of-year gathering in CCAS Kumba in 2012. The following year, I became a full time CameroonFDP leader in our school and continued running sessions for one year in the absence of Mr. Diony, who had become the head of CameroonFDP operations in Kumba. A year after my ordinary level, I moved to CCAS Kumba for high school and continued sessions in CCAS Kumba. I now hold a First Participation Certificate from Coaches Across Continents as Community Impact Coach. I find great pleasure participating in all CameroonFDP programs and that is why I spend my time informing others about the importance of participating in CameroonFDP sessions.
