The Foundation of Self-Made Series: A Meeting with SELF.

Every one of us has a lot of untold stories that have never been published in a book, on the radio or television, etc. That has the power to transform society in a multitude of social, political, and economic domains. Under the umbrella of the Wilsen Initiative (Wi) Skill Up Programme, I launched the Self-Made Series as a way to support young people as they navigate the path of self-discovery and self-realization and all that it entails in reaching their life goals.

I've learned that, even at our darkest hours, we can turn around and move towards realising our dreams in life—but only if we adopt an optimistic outlook, ask for help when we need it, and believe in our own abilities, to name a few. 

 What comes to mind when I think of self-made: personal story, self-care, self-love, introspection, passion, gift, desires, dream, talent, support pillars, vision, goal, the star, the pain, etc.  Self Made is about a deliberate intention to investing more in oneself to do more, be more and be different.

This is a process I have been practicing that has helped me understand more about myself and purpose in life that I would love to share with especially young people to help them define or redefine their pathway towards their own meaning of success. 

Self-made isn't about doing things alone and excluding the rest; it's more about recognising your efforts and your contribution towards the success of the team or personal project.

It is an introspection of understanding why, what, when, where, who, and how towards achieving a set goal. Self-made also advocates for knowing where and when you need support and reaching out to family, friends, and well-wishers.  

Self-made is a deliberate effort towards becoming a better version of oneself every day. I believe in the change that starts within oneself.

Recruit the Next Top Talent for NSL and KPL from the Grassroots Leagues.

#POV #YouthSpace

I would encourage the teams to adopt new ways of spotting and uplifting talent now that the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) transfer window has officially opened.

If I'm not mistaken, only a few top-tier teams from the NSL to the KPL host tryouts for scouting players. I also doubt if there's a scouting system in place, and if there's one, it isn't clear how it is done, and the scouts aren't noticeable within the ranks of the club. 

Anyway, in conjunction with what is best known to the clubs, I would encourage the coaches to spare time to follow the ongoing lower leagues to spot talents and, if possible, invite particular teams for friendly matches. 

Do we have quality players at the grassroots fit for the NSL and KPL leagues?

I know it can be argued that players from lower divisions lack the experience to play in top-tier leagues, but if we don't intentionally recruit a certain percentage to go up a level, when will they get the experience?  Secondly, even with exemplary performance, does a player need connections?

General Observation

I have noticed that the grassroots league hosts many talented players who don't know how to scale up to the next level or, in general, what they need to do to play for top-tier clubs. On the other hand, there's a great fanbase at the community level following the league matches that can support the development of grassroots football.

Here are some pictures from last Sunday's game featuring Mathare North Youth F.C vs. Mathare North United F.C in a FKF Nairobi County Regional League match.







Big Move 2023 -2024 KPL League.

As a community, we are happy for Kelly Madada to have signed with the AFC Leopards S.C in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL). It is evident that we have more talents that need to be exposed further. Given the chance, we hope to export more talents to the NSL and KPL next season.
