History and Civic Education, Grade 8-12 | Arise Christian School
Ian is an enthusiastic teacher at Arise Christian School. He cares deeply for the children of Zambia and is passionate about shaping young minds. After high school, his dream was to become a lawyer, but he began to connect and build relationships with young people in his community. He gained interest in youth empowerment programs and spearheaded an unregistered movement called Cheerful Hearts Youth Association of Zambia.
While empowering the youth of Zambia, he began to develop his skills as a teacher. Up to that point, the majority of his efforts involved encouraging youth to stand on their own and be self-sufficient. But, by 2012, he had developed his talent for teaching and it evolved into the passion and pursuit of becoming an educator.
