- I am 18 years old
- I am from Owing Ki Bul Village, in Eastern Equatoria, South Sudan
- I am a member of the Acholi tribe
- My family now lives in Adjumani, Uganda to escape the violence in South Sudan
If I had not heard about LASS from a radio announcement, I am sure I would be laying bricks. LASS is giving me the opportunity to have a successful life. LASS is unique because of the discipleship program and we eat together as a family. My teachers have encouraged me to have a balanced life that takes includes my social, physical, mental and spiritual being, so when I am not studying I really enjoy playing futball!
My dream is to be a part of the change in South Sudan. The diversity has brought all of us together even though we are from different tribes and cultures. I really want to be a leader for South Sudan. If I were president I would promote love for one another to bring about peace and unity. South Sudan needs good governance, God-fearing leaders and love for one another among all the people.
My goal in life is to become an engineer. I want to be part of the people who design the infrastructure in South Sudan for it to become a great country. - Lam July 2017
My Vision For The Future

- I want to be a job creator
- I hope to visit the United States to learn skills that I can use to serve South Sudan
