I recently had the opportunity to visit Cameroon and as I spent time with family I also could not help but appreciate the fact that progress has been made however slow it may seem.
Maybe the problem is that our own perception of what we should be and how our country should look like is in itself a problem and presents a barrier.
Many European countries do not look alike and have a totally diverse geographical landscape.
What they do have in common is that almost everyone has access to a public service which provides healthcare, social welfare services, parks and other recreational services, Great speed internet and 24 hour electricity.
Maybe that what we need… However, the problem of #Leadership remains.

Our women are busy making major strides. I promise to write more. That’s my resolution. What’s yours?
