It also motivates children to love arts and science.

Nyangoso Machage

DSC01642

My name is Nyangoso Machage, and I am an 18-year-old Tanzanian.

I value many things in my life, such as my parents, the dignity of all people, my studies, my relatives and all other people in the world. I also value the different work, ideas and opinions of other people.

I believe that equality is the most important thing, and happiness is the number one thing I strive for in my own life.

My skills include being able to study biology and being a cheerful person. I am an excellent leader who works hard because I believe resting instead of working causes poverty for any person like me who is seeking a better life.

Right now in life I have one main responsibility that I cannot let anything distract me from, and that responsibility is to study hard day and night without listening to any people who might try to destroy my scholastic progress. After finishing my studies, my responsibility will be to help my community and the world at large by using my skills and education. Another responsiblity I have right now is to respect my parents, along with my friends and other relatives, because my parents are the pillars that have held me up for all of my successes.

My life goals can be broken down into two main categories, which are goals for the short term and goals for the long term.

My main long-term goal is to pass all of the tests in front of me, specifically I want to pass the Form 6 (12th Grade) test with Division I (highest marks) in Physics, Chemistry and Biology. I would then like to go study medicine at the University of West Virginia in America and to pass of all of my tests there as well. I also aim to marry a good wife who is cheerful, polite and full of love for her family and mine. I would like to live and work in New York City with my family. I will love my wife and my family more than I even love myself. Every now and then we will come to Tanzania to visit my parents and relatives.

My short-term goal is to study hard and to avoid all things that might pull me from the path of finishing my studies and achieving my dreams. I also have the goal of becoming a good listener who will be humble and listen to the advice of others.

I want a good life, which means for now I must concentrate only on my education and nothing else.

At the end of my life, I hope that I will have done the following things: I have studied and received my degree from West Virginian University; I have helped find vaccinations/cures for deadly illnesses like AIDS, cancer and malaria; I have married a good wife and had three children; I have lived in New York City with my wife and children; I have opened a hospital in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

In God I trust.

Mimi naitwa Nyangoso Machage. Nina umri wa miaka 18 na ni mtazania.

Katika maisha yangu nathamini mambo mengi kama vile wazazi wangu, utu wangu na wa watu wengine, masomo yangu na upendo wa hali ya juu sana kwa ndugu zangu wote pamoja na watu wengine. Pia ninaithamini kazi ya mtu mwingine na mawazo au maoni ya watu tofauti tofauti.

Katika maisha yangu ninaamini kuwa usawa ni jambo kuu na muhimu katika maisha na pia furaha ni jambo kuu lenye kufaa katika maisha yangu.

Vipaji nilivyonavyo ni kama ifuatavyo amabapo nina uwezo wa kusoma masomo ya sayansi ya viumbe na ni mchangamfu. Mimi ni kiongozi bora sana na pia ni mchapakazi mzuri ambapo ninaamini kuwa usingizi ni chanzo cha umaskini katika maisha ya mtu yeyote ule ambayo ni mtafutaji ama nilivyo mimi.

Majukumu niliyonayo katika maisha kwa sasa ninalo jukumu moja kuu ambapo sipaswi kulichanganya na jambo jingine lolote lile katika maisha yangu ya sasa na majukumu hilo ni kusoma kwa bidii usiku na mchana bila kujali ni mtu gani anayetaka kuniharibia mjongeo wangu au mwenendo wangu kimasomo. Pia jakumu langu nikiwa tayari nimemaliza masomo yangu ni kuisaidia jamii yangu na dunia kwa ujumula kwa kutumia ujuzi na elimu nitakatokuwa nimepata. Pia jukumu langu kingine la sasa ni kuwaheshima wazazi wangu na ndugu zangu na marafiki zangu. Maana wazazi wangu ndio nguzo na mwongozo katika kila mafanikio nimeyopata. Pia kuwapenda watu wote na kuufuata ushauri wao.

Malengo yangu katika maisha yamegawanyika katika sehemu kuu mbili ambazo ni malengo ya muda mrefu na malengo ya muda mfupi.

Malengo ya muda mrefu: Lengo langu kuu la muda mrefu ni kufaulu mitihani iliyopo mbele yangu yaani mtihani wa kidato cha VI ambapo ninefaulu kwa divisioni I PCB na endapo nitakuwa nimefaulu ningependa niende kusoma stashahada yangu ya udaktari katika chuo kikuu cha West Virginia kilichopo Marekani na kufaulu mtihani yote ya chuo hapo. Ambapo pia ninalenga kupata mke bora mwenye furaha, mchangamfu, mwenye nidhamu na mwenye kuwapenda na kuwajali ndugu zangu na ndugu zake ambapo makazi yangu kikazi itakuwa ni katika jiji la New York, Marekani, mimi na familia yangu. Nitampenda sana mke wangu na familia yangu kuliko nitakavyokuwa najipenda mimi mwenyewe. Mara kwa mara nitakuwa nikija Tanzania kuwaona ndugu zangu na wazazi wangu.

Malengo yangu ya muda mfupi ni kusoma kwa bidii zaidi na kuyaepuka yote ambayo yanaweza kunitoa katika mlolongo wa kuikamilisha ndoto yangu kuu hapo juu. Pia nina lengo la kuwa msikilizaji na mtu mwenye kujishusha na kusikiliza ushauri wa watu wengine.

Katika maisha yangu ninatafuta maisha mazuri yaani elimu kwa muda huu na siyo jambo jingine lolote lile ambalo linaweza kunitoa katika maendeleo ya elimu yangu kwa ujumla.

Mwisho kabisa wa maisha yangu ningependa kuwa nimeyafanya yafuatayo: Nimepata elimu yangu ya chuo kikuu katika West Virginia Univerity; Nimetafuta chanjo ya magonjwa hatari kama UKIMWI, kansa na malaria; Nimempata mke mzuri na watoto watatu; Nimefanikiwa kuweza kuishi jijini New York mimi na familia yangu; Nimefungua hospitali jijini Dar es Salaam

Raulian Raphael

DSC01643

My name is Raulian Raphael, a male Tanzanian. During my lifetime, the thing I most important thing is that I work for and achieve all of my dreams, especially my goal of helping create jobs for young people.

There are several things I value, including human rights, equality and education. These things will bring all of us people together so that we can work to develop our world without harassment, discrimination and opprestion.

As a whole, I believe there two important things in life: to commit oneself and work hard. These two are the two pillars necessary for encouraging development and combating poverty. When people are healthy and whole, everything is possible and all people are equal.

Furthermore, I have skills that will help me to achieve my goals, such as drawing and playing sports like the high jump and running. These skills make me a cheerful, healthy person, and they help me to be creative in things concerning the arts and sciences.

However, I have more than just skills and dreams, I also have certain responsibilities in my life. One of these is to study hard, to educate my community and to defend human rights and equality in my community. Doing this will ensure peace and security, which are the cornerstones of development throughout the entire world.

My short-term goals are to study, to help protect our environment by planting trees and to protect my rights and the rights of my community. My main goals for later in life are to become a doctor so that I can work to find a cure for chronic, dangerous illnesses like cancer and strokes that cause many deaths all across the world.

At the end of my life, I want to have accomplished several important goals. The first is to build a big hospital and a center that will help orphans, the elderly, children in need and people with disabilities. I also want to perform scientific research and help ensure that rights and equality of all people. Simultaneously, I also hope to help find a way to address the lack of jobs available for young people.

Kwa majina ninaitwa Raulian Raphael. Ni kijana wa kiume raia wa Tanzania. Katika maisha yangu jambo kuu ninalolitafuta ni kuzifikia na kukamilisha ndoto zangu hasa upatikanaji wa ajira kwa vijana.

Katika maisha yangu mambo ninayothamini ni pamoja na haki, usawa pamoja na elimu bora. Mambo hayo kwa pamoja yataweza kutuweka binadamu wote pamoja hivyo kuweza kujiletea maendelea sisi wenyewe bila unyanyasaji, ubaguzi na hata ukandamizaji.

Kwa ujumla maishani mwangu naamini sana kuu ya mambo makuu mawili ambayo ni kujituma na kufanya kazi kwa bidii kuwa ndio misingi mikuu ya kuleta maendelea pamoja na kupambana na umaskini. Hivyo palipo afya na uzima kila kitu chawezekana, na binadamu wote ni sawa.

Hali kadhalika, ninavyo vipaji vitakavyoweza kunisiadia kuyafikia malengo yangu na vipaji hivi ni uchoraji, michezo kama vile miruko ya juu na kukimbia. Vipaji hivi hunifanya kuwa mchangamfu na mwenye afya na kuniongezea ufanisi katika ubunifi wa kisayansi na kisanaa.

Si mambo haya tu lakini pia ninayo majukumu makubwa sana katika maisha yangi. Moja ya majukumu haya ni kusoma kwa bidii, kuelimisha jamii, kutetea haki na usawa katika jamii hii ni ajili ya kuhakikisha amani na usalama kuwa ndio misingi ya maendelea duniani kote.

Malengo yangu ya mda ni kusoma na kujihusisha na utunzaji wa mazingira ikiwa ni pamoja na upandaji wa miti ya kutosha, kudai haki zangu stahili pamoja na haki za jamii yangu. Mbali na hayo malengo yangu makuu ya hapo baadaye ni kuwa daktari na hii ni kwa ajili ya kupata suluhu la magonjwa sugu na hatari sana kama vile kansa pamoja na kupooza, kwani yamekuwa chanzo cha vifo vingi sana duniani sehemu mbalimbali ulimenguni.

Mwisho wa maisha yangu ninapenda kuwa nemekamilisha mambo haya muhimu, kujenga hospitali kubwa na kituo cha kulelea watoto yatima, pamjoa na kusaidia wazee, watoto pamoja na walemavu. Ikiwa ni pamoja na kuendesha utafiti na uchunguzi wa kisayansi, pia kuhakikisha haki na usawa umepatikana kwa watu wote sanjari na kutatua na kulipatia ufumbuzi suala la ukosefu wa ajira kwa vijana.

Alistidia Florian

I am Alistidia Florian, a Tanzanian girl who is 19 years old. I finished Form IV (10th grade) in 2013 at Kayanga Secondary School. I am confident, respectful and care for all people, whether they be old or young, rich or poor.

I seek human rights, education and equality for all people. I value human dignity, agriculture, my parents, education and God. All people have the right to dignity and to be respected, even if they are young, disabled or any other type of person. Education is especially important because it delivers us from hardship. Without education, you will not be as valued by other people. I also really value my parents because they are second only to God. I love them, and they have provided me with the education that has continued to help me even up until this point in my life.

I believe that all things are possible if you pray to God. If you don’t just depend on yourself and instead you believe in and ask God for help, your goals will be achieved. Whether you want to be a doctor, teacher or lawyer, if you ask you will receive because God himself has said that as you believe, so it shall be.

I also believe education makes all things possible because if you are educated you will have a purpose in life. If you are education, it is easier to find good work, and because of this education is my main focus in life now.

I also believe money helps makes all things possible. Money helps people to gain their rights. Many people have lost their rights because of money, so this is why I believe money is important.

My skills are playing soccer, playing mchezo wa pete, and teaching. After finishing Form IV, I volunteered to teach small children, and I am very good at teaching art.

My responsibilities in life are to study hard in order to help me achieve my goals and to help with chores and home. My short-term goal is to continue with my studies, and my long-term goal for after I finish studying is to help my family, to help those in need and to become the leading lawyer in Tanzania who will help people protect their rights regardless of race, tribe or political affiliation.

The first thing I want to have accomplished at the end of my life is to have helped those in need like orphans, widows and people with disabilities to gain an education and other important life necessities. I also want to have help those who have been oppressed by laws, such as widows who have their wealth and inheritance snatched away. As a lawyer, I also want to have helped combat corruption and punish both those who give and receive bribes of any kind.

Mimi ni Alistidia Florian ni msichana wa kitanzania mwenye umri wa miaka 19. Ni mhitimu kidato cha nne mwaka 2013 katika shule ya sekondari Kayanga. Mimi ni kijana mwenye ujasiri, heshima, na utii kwa kila mtu mdogo kwa mkubwa na tajiri kwa maskini.

Mimi katika maisha yangu natafuta haki, elimu, pamoja na usawa kwa kila mtu. Katika maisha yangu nathamini utu wa mtu, kilimo, wazazi, elimu pamoja na Mungu. Kila mtu ana haki ya kutunzwa utu wake na heshima yake awe mdogo, mlemavu, au mtu yeyote yule. Pia nathamini sana elimu kwa sababu ndio mkombozi wetu. Pasipo elimu huwezi kuwa na thamani mbele ya watu. Pia wazazi wangu nawathamini sana kwa sababu ndio Mungu wa pili ukitoa tule wa mbingu. Nawapenda na ndio wanaonipa elimu ambayo inanisiadia mpaka sasa kwa hiyo nawapenda sana.

Mimi ninaamini katika Mungu kwamba kila akitu kinawezekana ukimuomba Mungu. Hukujiwekea malengo na ukamuomba Mungu na kumuamini lazima lengo lako litatimia. Ukiwa na lengo la kuwa daktari, mwalimu, au mwanasheria na ukimwomba lazima utapata kwa sababu yeye alisema unavyoamini ndivyo itakwavyokuwa.

Pia naamini katika elimu kwa kila kitu kinawezekana na ukiwa na elimu yako, huwezi kuangaika. Ukiwa elimu itakuwa rahisi kupata kazi nzuri na ya maana kwa hiyo elimu kwangu ndio mpango mzima.

Pia naamini katika pesa kwamba kila kitu kinawezekana ukiwa na pesa. Pesa inaweza kununua hata roho ya mtu. Pesa inafanya mwenye haki asiwi na haki. Wengi wamepoteza haki zao kwa sababu ya pesa kwa hiyo naamini katika pesa kila kitu kinawezekana.

Vipaji vyangu ni kucheza mpira wa miguu, kucheza mpira wa pete na kufundisha. Baada ya kuhitimu kidato cha nne, nilikuwa najitolea kufundisha watoto wadogo na pia nina uwezo katika kufundisha mambo ya sanaa.

Majukumu yangu katika maisha yangu ni kusoma kwa bidii ili kufikia malengo yangu, pia kusaidia kazi ndogondogo za nyumbani. Malengo ya muda mfupi ni kusoma na malengo ya muda mrefu baada ya masomo ni kusaidia familia yangu, kuwasaidia wahitaji, pia kuwa mwanasheria mkuu wa Tanzania na kutoa haki kwa wote bila kuchagua rangi, kabila au chama.

Mambo ambayo nataka niwe nimeyakamilisha niwe nimeshawasaidia wahitaji hasa yatima, wajane na walemavu kwa kuwapatia elimu na mahitaji muhimu katika maisha. Pia kuwa nimewasaidia wale wanakandamizwa na sheria kama wanawake wajane wanaonyanganywa mali zao. Pia kama mwanasheria ni kupigana na rushwa kwa wale wanaotoa au kupokea rushwa ya aina yoyote ile.
