Ella Theodette Rudacogora says that her major takeaway from the event is that the time to take action is now!

She said, “Everything i want to do i just have to make sure that I start. I do not have to wait for the next year or wait for investors to put my idea into action.

Her message to young people who could not attend the event is to,”Stop bring afraid start do not count on anybody, It all depends on you.”

Gael Ndayiziga says that he was empowered by the ideas of the panelists but especially Dominique Alonga.

He said, “I was empowered by ideas and how to grow your business and to be creative, my takeaway from Dominique is how she said to examine our lives and find something good that we can create and not to wait around for opportunities to come one day.”

Ashimwe prudent realized from the event that you do not have to be old to be bold.

He said, “I saw people my age, who have amazing dreams who have great futures. I thought that only older people can achieve certain things but I was inspired to actually do something and be successful while young.”
