Namukisa commented on Developing Talents in Art for self-sustenance.

" Culture is pride" as a motto for Rockies organization goes. I am in total agreement with the idea of advancing Rockies organization, to an academy of performing and creative arts. It means a lot to me many young people have travelled to different parts of the world because of their talents, me inclusive it has helped me meet high profile people who have inspired me to remain focused and has also helped me learn to express myself .
Talent once developed can help those who are not employed to get employment and earn a living. Through performing arts I have managed to pay my tuition and at least get a side income apart from my monthly salary. I have traveled to many different parts of the world because of art and it has taught me how to live advance cultures.
I happen to be a member of Rockies organization and thank the Rockies for having helped me discover who I am and what I can do to help the young generation understand the importance of talents in one’s life. Therefore I call upon our government and partners to put more effort in talent developing which will help more youth not to look for jobs but rather be employed by their talents.
