Working with the African Library Project (ALP), I was able to help many children experience the wonders of reading. This inspired me to continue supporting libraries and collaborating with others who shared the same interest in three other half libraries. The projects I have worked on have improved my leadership and collaboration skills. Because of ALP, I got to know my community better and speak up for a good cause. I was able to take the lead and work individually as well as with others for a good cause.

ALP has allowed me to show my dedication to a cause to people worldwide, and I am very thankful to the wonderful coordinators and staff who helped me make the library possible. I am proud of what I have accomplished and am looking forward to other projects in the future.
