Depending on the industry you’re in you might be familiar with some of these speeches already. However, there is no doubt that these three speeches which were made by three African business leaders specifically from Uganda will create a lasting and memorable impact.
I think I would like to be remembered as a person that loved and left everybody I met feelings feeling seen and heard. Yeah, I want that If I met somebody, whoever I interface, I want to leave them feeling like I heard them, like I saw them and I understand.
I would like to be remembered now, like what I set out to do as a young girl who, against all odds would not make it. But at least we’ve made this far so to the rest of the world, or whoever cares to remember me should know that. I mean, if she set out to do what she did, then anyone else can do it.
And, it’s more like an inspirational way of being remembered. But I think that’s how I would want to be remembered. A resilient Woman.
I think, when I think about that, I feel like it should not be about me.
But I would like to be remembered for my work and what that did for women, It’s not so much about me as a person, I think, as a person. Of course, I wanted to remember there’s a kind person, someone who was there for the people in her life. Yeah, but I want to be remembered for pushing the agenda and changing things.
I want the world and the way women are perceived. African women, the challenges the situations the boxes were put in in my lifetime I don’t want to be the ones I live here.
By the time I’m old, let’s hope, very, very old and then gone, things should be different. The African girls that are being born today that are going through what we went through should not have the same experience.
They should have more opportunities. They should have more support.
They should have wilder, bigger dreams. I don’t want the 15 year old in Ibanda in 2070 to still be dreaming of going to Mbarara and having kids and eating chips.
If I can do anything to change that and to push that forward, that’s all I want to be remembered for.
