Musunga Sue Chuzu was the winner of AGCO’s Africa Ambassador 2012 contest. Read more about her experience, involvement, and opportunities over the last months with us.
I got to know about the Africa Ambassador contest through social media and I immediately knew I liked it. I applied because of the vast opportunity that the contest presented to me to meet highly influential people, travel to Berlin, host a world summit and contribute to the development of the African continent.
I prepared for the summit by making sure that I had enough rest when I arrived. I also read widely on the profiles of the speakers for the summit noting a few things that I needed to highlight about them that were of interest when making my introductions. I practiced in first of the mirror about 7 to 8 times a day and pronounced the speakers names over and over and over again until I got all of them right.
My time as the Africa Ambassador was a wonderful experience that was full of excitement. I gained knowledge and was kept stimulated, I also made a lot of friends, went sightseeing and I liked the fact that I played a key role during the summit.
Being crowned AGCO Africa Ambassador has been a tremendous opportunity and a life changing journey. Over the last 10 months I have gained a lot of skills and experiences, which have helped me develop as a person. I must have done something right and impressive during the summit because I have since joined AGCO as the Marketing and Communications Manager for AGCO Zambia as of August 2012. The opportunities are endless with this title and it’s up to you to work hard and grab them.
