"The young sculptor represents our civilization mostly ruled by the male. His youth shows that our civilization is still immature. The sculptor is chiseling a huge heap of coal in order to find the diamond representing divine knowledge. "The sculptor ignores the pain, strain, hardship and temptation of everything surrounding him. All he focuses on is on finding this particular diamond, and he knows that if he chisels long enough through the black coal layers, representing human knowledge, he will finally see the diamond of the Supreme Knowledge. ... "The melted ice that formed a narrow stream flowing through, symbolizes humanity's thirst for knowledge that can be quenched only by the light of love."

One of my ideas for bringing knowledge and education to more people is to pursue a degree in architecture and design. I want to advance the existing methods of designing from different perspective. I want to incorporate the knowledge I have of tribal communities and traditional East African design with Western architectural drafting and technology to create my own architecture firm. Using that firm, I will create jobs and design buildings that shape the world through amazing designs instead of violence, greed, and hostility. I’m pursuing this dream both for myself and for my parents, who were never given the opportunity to an education.
