I felt appreciated and loved each day at ALA. Thank you for allowing me to mentor and care for our young leaders on campus. I am privileged and humbled to play a role (albeit, small) in defining the future of the continent and this world. Thank you for teaching me how to dream for a better continent, to celebrate my “Global South” identity, and care for each other without restraint. I am grateful for the lessons in leadership, humility, and excellence that I have learnt over the past two years. And for these invaluable gifts, I shall remain forever indebted.
Clubs and Societies, and Sports at African Leadership Academy are a part of the Residential Life program. This stream of student engagement aims to help them discover and explore their passions and interests, nurture new skills and knowledge, understand societal needs, balance learning and recreation, and teach them how to integrate their personal interests into the community on-campus, and back home.
The Clubs and Societies space is also a space where students practice leadership in facilitating, planning and mentoring peers towards specific goals and initiatives.
