What do you currently do?I’m a videography and software development intern at Bongohive, a technology innovation hub in Lusaka Zambia.
How did you get involved in the Lusaka Markets Video project?Through an enthusiastic young lady that told me about the project, Ngosa.
Why did you agree to be involved in this video project?I agreed because I saw it as an opportunity to have my country’s beautiful environment (for lack of a better word) shown to the world, as we see it.
Why do you think we need to take action and create quality videos of Zambian people and places?Tricky question. I say we need this country to be publicised in a different light from that of the media — being news during only catastrophes and the like. Its a beautiful country and it’s people are too, so we should show it to the world as such.
What is your dream for this project?That it becomes a massive success and both local and international people benefit from it.
What is your dream for Zambia?My dream for Zambia is to have a mind set change, so its people may be more open minded, especially to things relating to technology.
Anything else you’d like to add?Well, only that we should forge ahead and support each other to make this project go the places it deserves.
Thank you for sharing this and donating, Jacqueline
