The God in me by Lawrence Simatyaba

About Lawrence

Full Name: Lawrence Simatyaba
Country Represented: Zambia

Why did you enter this storytelling contest?

I have observed that there is too much moral decay in our African society, we need to promote positive behaviours. I strongly feel that my story is unique and that most young people can learn something out of it. It’s not about the money, but I really want my story to be heard in the whole of Africa.

What does storytelling mean to you?

To me, storytelling entails imparting knowledge of change in a particular society or individual. Stories told with passion can bring about positive change in either an individual or societies by learning from them. Stories can also preserve culture.

Why did you tell this story?

It’s close to my heart because it is my true personal life experience, I feel so bad and sad when I look at my missed opportunities. So I want people to learn from the mistakes which I made.

      You are one of the few friends who have given me hope, each time I speak to you, you rekindle my spirit to fight own despite all odds. You are a true friend indeed

      Out of this experience, it pushed me to register a youth network called, Network for youth with a purpose NYP the organisation I use to preach positive behaviour change messages to the youth and general community. I am currently the President for the said network, but it has been very difficult to source for funding to support my work. I also provide consultant works to government and various NGOs but it hasn’t been going well.
