It was a nice sunny Sunday afternoon…church service was over, my spirit was satisfied, fed, filled and cup running over. Ironically, at the same time my stomach was empty and dissatisfied, I was hungry and my belly was making noise like a run-away-train. In the middle of this noise, Alieu called and proposed the fattest and juiciest elephant served on a golden platter, beautifully seasoned and ready to eat. He broke down the GoGetters vision, painted a perfect picture that made my innovated mind immediately burst into action. I knew it was an initiative that could not be turned down but at the time, I had no idea how it was going to be done or how I will benefit from such a journey. Yes, naturally I was a little reluctant in jumping into an unforeseen territory because failure is eminent, but the reward of the unknown can also be un-measurable and second to none, hence why to me, nothing was more exciting than taking that initial step and risk into this journey.
Like most people that heard of GoGetters, I loved the initiative and I was rather privileged to be approached as a founding member, my initial reaction was;
‘’Wow… What an idea, but how on earth will this be carried out?’’.
Then it came to me, the sight of an elephant in the room is rather awkward to challenge, but trying to eat the elephant is a whole new challenge…. I have always understood that with perseverance and determination anything is possible… I was sold! I personally want to see GoGetters build enough networks and understanding to encourage and assist like-minded individuals who are passionate about renewable energy and technology to tuck into their elephant and demolish it one bite at a time… now that’s how you eat an elephant!
