Smart Solutions- Cathy: Swift Ambulances
Over the past 6 weeks I have taken part in a Professional Development Program, Mandela Washington Fellowship by the United States Government @Notre Dame University, and I have gotten to meet 24 fabulous young people from 20 Countries in Africa whom I am proud to have meet, because they all are doing something for Africa and offering smart solutions to problems and opportunities in their countries, before I arrived for the program I got a chance to view their profiles and I was intimidated! These guys looked so brilliant I didn’t think I could share a room with them, until I met them, one by one…Gosh they were the funniest most amazing young Africans I have ever met.
I’d like to share My personal experience with each of them and of course their amazing Initiative in solutions for Africa; Smart Solutions for Africa!
Allow me to share a story for each of them along with their smart solution.

Cathy is the most competitive, driven person I've ever seen. And the only person I've met who can actually out-talk me...its a gift. I often used to tease her that I fear for her country if she ever became president, Cathy is mad brutal! She would have you castrated if you didn't follow country policy.
Oh, and we found her grandfathers statue in Indianapolis
