I founded Misongi, an organization that identifies, nurtures and connects Cameroon’s most exceptional, motivated youth with leading institutions of higher education and further opportunities. By working with these students — beginning in junior high, Misongi aims to increase the percentage of talented Cameroonian students attending the world’s best universities and to support them to achieve success in their careers and communities. Our students come from across Cameroon and are driven by a desire to (re)discover their culture and the world. Besides being academically gifted, they demonstrate a keen interest for service that translates into the various volunteering activities they engage in their communities. Whether it is learning about water management, doing medical research to improve young inmates’ health care, learning first aid care with the Red Cross or teaching English to teenagers and adults, I am proud of my students’ commitment to making a difference in Cameroon. Proud to be an Eph, and happy to Teach it Forward! Veronique Hob-Hob ’13.
