In the northern part of Tanzania the Kilimanjaro is the place where this conservationist born. Beyond that I have many ambitions and talents. He is an avid reader and writer, computer literate and a driver.

It was after finished my o ’level secondary school at DCT Jubilee High school, I met a guy a retired from TANAPA and talk about wildlife, that man didn’t talk much with me so he handled me bundles of Tourism and conservation magazine famous known as KAKAKUONA (Pangolin magazine). I read all the magazine in a few days and returned them back to that man, and asked him to give me more magazine for more information, so from there on I become so interested and passionate about wildlife, and good enough because I learned science subjects then my way to my dream to study wildlife seems possible.

The interest and passion I have on wildlife influence me to select to study Bachelor of Science in Wildlife Management at Sokoine University of Agriculture, where I absorb and enjoy everything and every course in wildlife. Due to my interest in wildlife after finishing my first degree in wildlife I Continue to study daily on internet, published papers and articles on wildlife conservation, through my interest in study and learn about wildlife is where I found Ruaha carnivore Project article on the internet, I start to read it very carefully and at the end of the article I saw an email. And said to myself I cannot wait to ask even for volunteering position on this great project of Ruaha Carnivore. My request accepted immediately and found myself on great and passionate people in wildlife than anyone I know, I really enjoy and work with enthusiasm every day.

Working at Ruaha Carnivore Project is a great opportunity for my life dream as a wildlife researcher, working here as a researcher assistant on Community Camera Trap (CCT). I like to work with community on the issues of wildlife and wildlife ecology. My life transformed at RCP when I met great and passionate professionals in wildlife, this cause me started to learn many programs at RCP like Park Trips, DVD Nights, Depredation follow up, Presentation and teaching secondary students on Carnivores, this broad spectrum of knowledge I got here is far more and caused by my interest in studying everything in wildlife.
