For me, leadership isn't just a tittle but its ability to lead people to reach their goals, I believe a good inclusive leader should possess these behaviors; empowering, accountability, courage, humility and above all is integrity. I always lead by executing those behaviors while maintaining professionalism in undertaking my responsibilities because I believe leadership and professionalism are inseparable. Let me briefly explain what I have achieved in my leadership skills so far.
In 2015, when I was working as a Quality assurance office at Zanzibar Bureau of Standards in Zanzibar, I was selected to be a team leader for the project called 'Guidelines for Controlling the Importation of Used Electrical and Electronic Equipment (UEEE) in Zanzibar' I was very excited to take this task because it was my first time to take this huge responsibility.
This project involved surveying, data collection, data analysis, stakeholders meetings, designing of controlling measures and report writings. This task required me to work with different people from different backgrounds and understandings, here is where humility was required to treat them right to reach our goal, it was very challenging project since it also involved end users and suppliers of UEEE who had wrong perception about this project but I was positive and encouraged a team work and cooperation to my group, this resulted sense of belonging and improved accountability.
After completing this project and the Board of Director approved, we were honored and the document was published and in 2016 implementation has started. I believe for this project I have shown my potential in leading and I learnt a lot on how to be a leader not just tittle but by hardworking, integrity and valuing every person's opinion.
Furthermore, Currently I work as Electrical Engineer and my main duty is to design and manage many Government projects where I supervise different contractors with different personalities and qualifications. Most of project I completed are the result of my leadership skills and professionalism.
Now, I see myself to study master's degree to improve the product of my work as I believe the saying "Leadership and learning are indispensable" J.F. Kennedy (Former US President) ,then I sincerely request Chevening Scholarship Committee to select me for better future of Tanzania.
