    This class has really been helpful to me. It is an interesting class, making learning fun and easy. It's an eye opener for me on policy change. It has helped me to align my passion and purpose. It has thought me that we really do not need to be in any position to make that change we desire. I realised with this class that it is important to meet people who share common vision as you so as to work together. When I joined first it all looks strange and I couldn't understand a thing but at the end of this class I can now clearly state my passion and my policy vision following the steps and tips giving and experiences of others. I am glad to be part of this

    Policy making is more than ideas of different people coming together in a conference to draft out their collective ideas but it is a tasking effort giving to policy makers. The policy maker must be triggered by his or her passion, because policy is brought out of passion and passion depends on every individual.

    The procedures of measuring a substantial passion must be follow to know how sustainable it can be, what we can do and what the world needs. Having done the above check we can bring out a policy that could stand the taste of time from our passion.

    With much honesty, I’ll say that I find this course much more fun and mind building than any other mindset course I have ever participated in. Furthermore, I’ll register my satisfaction for the first week course and am certain that the end product will obviously be admirable and impactful.
    I’ll therefore urge everyone who is taking this course to be open minded, enjoy, curious and most importantly remain positive to the end. Otherwise I’m delighted to be part of this program aimed at making a difference in our societies, nations, continents and the entire world through effective planning and governance.
