Brian M.

Kenya

Summary

I seek to effectively contribute to solving traditional and emerging Global Issues and shaping African conversations through my knowledge in Diplomacy, Gender Development, Sustainable Urbanization External relations and Security studies. Understanding the place policy has in necessitating change, I participated in a competition organized by the United Nations Security Council and the Stimson Center and developed a five year action plan for Kenya in regards to efforts of non-proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction as well as the full realization of UNSC resolution 1540. I was among the top finalists among several participants and my abstract was published in the Stimson Center's website. I was privileged to be among the individuals selected to participate in the recent first ever organized Youth Forum in the 14th session of the United Nations conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and was among the individuals who contributed to the drafting of the Youth declaration. This gave me a unique opportunity to interact with individuals from different nationalities in different regions of the world and agree on a common agenda within a multicultural environment. I also presented on Africa’s scramble for Europe during a conference on Human Security in Africa organized by the Hekima Institute of Peace and International Relations in Nairobi, a constituent college of Catholic University of Eastern Africa. Using Eritrea as a case study, I looked at the conditions that lead to migration flows from Africa and the perilous journey migrants from Africa have to take in search of freedom and peace. Through my Professional, Voluntary work and academic background, as well as my engagements in various forums, I have been able to gain significant knowledge and expertise in the Development world.
