ABOUT BILLY YASIN
Billy Yasin grew up in New Fadama, Accra-Ghana, a small suburb in the capital city of 5 thousand people. Billy states, "The experience of growing up in a small town has helped to prepare me for life after high school." A particular goal he developed was to attend a professional institution. "This experience has led me to be more open-minded and accepting of others." In Billy's view, small town life was both a blessing and a challenge in life.
Billy attended primary and junior high school at Datus Complex School. He successfully gained admission to St. John's Grammar School to pursue Business interests. He wished to enhance training he had received at the Stable Computer Training Institute where he was able to study a few courses related to computer. Billy wanted to equip himself with the basics of computer. After high school, he continued with professional education in a course for Hardware and Networking Engineer. After completing this course, Billy became a trained Hardware and Networking Qualified Professional.
Here is how Billy describes himself: "I am a unique, cultured, self-assured, compassionate and impassioned individual. I have learned to reach for the stars. I possess many qualities that have earned me the respect and admiration of my peers and educators. Throughout my educational career experience I have gained many assets and attributes. I have worked to acquire characteristics that will qualify me to make significant contributions to the world at large."
Billy further states: "I know that I am a natural born leader. People tend to look up to me. They know I am dedicated to whatever I commit to and that I will always put my best foot forward. Throughout the many leadership positions I have held, I found that people want to see confidence. They want a person who isn't afraid of speaking their mind in an intelligent manner. Being aware of this, I decided to get involved with youth and social work. In addition, I hoped to fight for the rights of both youth and the less privileged."
Billy has been involved in a variety of capacity building programs, workshops, seminars, conferences including the following:
* In 2005, he helped organize an HIV/AIDS walk across the capital city of Ghana to create awareness of HIV/AIDS and ways to prevent it.
* In 2005, he and a comrade helped create a record of people waiving at Kofi Annan on 60th anniversary of the United Nations with the UN Youth Orchestra in Germany (http://www.unyouthorchestra.org/
* He has volunteered with The Oak Tree Foundation from Australia on a documentary related to an ongoing, but outmoded practice in the volta region of GHANA called "Trokosi" whose practices included sacrificing a virgin woman for an offense not committed by the woman but a family member. This woman then stays with the person in charge o the gods to serve him - that person can use her for any purpose.
In Billy's words,"In a nutshell, I am interested in helping make the world a better and safer place for all of us! My hobbies include football (sports in general), surfing the Internet, reading and thinking and helping others within my capacity when the need arises. I love traveling a lot to see the reality of life in other countries. My dream in life is to see everybody in all walks of life smiling at each other with a clear heart and mind."
