"I need to be in charge of my health because it is my responsibility"

Josphine: "I need to be in charge of my health because it is my life, my body and I know how it operates." Banda: "I'm in charge of my health and life because it is my right." Jerop: "Why do I need to be in charge of my own health and life? Simple: my body, my life, my choice, my opinions." Zipporah: "I need to be in charge of my health because it is my responsibility. I need to lead the change." Banda: "Because I want to be in control of my life and health." Jerry: "The healthier, the longer I live." Jerop: "As a young person, if strategically positioned, I am able to achieve the desired change. That's why I need to lead the change." Jerry: "I know the changes that I need." Josphine: "I need to lead change because I am young, I'm energetic and because I have the expertise." All: "And we are excited for YouthWise!"
