“Queues of people start lining up at my house to charge their mobile phone. I could not get rid of them. And the reporters came too, which lead to bloggers and which lead to a call from something called TED. I had never seen an airplane before. I had never slept in a hotel. So, on stage that day in Arusha, my English lost, I said something like,”I tried. And I made it.”
So I would like to say something to all the people out there, like me, to the Africans, and the poor who are struggling with your dreams, God bless. Maybe one day you will watch this on the Internet. I say to you, trust yourself and believe. Whatever happens don’t give up. Thank you.” – William Kamkwamba
This young man is such an inspiration. His simple determination is what moved me the most I think.
