DUKU'S PRESENCE WILL MAKE YOU REALISE THE FUTURE IS STANDING RIGHT INFRONT OF YOU.
Duku Fore has an unearthly work ethic and drive. He is an international awe-inspiring speaker, Entrepreneur, TEDx speaker, UN Delegate and a LinkedIn Youth Editor. He possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience very rare to people of all ages.
Duku was born and raised in a refugee camp in Uganda. At the age of 10, his family was accepted on a refugee visa and relocated to Australia. During this time, he couldn’t speak English. The only word he knew was the word YES. On Duku’s first day in school, a girl asked him out. But because he didn’t know what she was saying, Duku responded YES. That’s how he got his first girlfriend in Australia. Not knowing how to speak English and being born with a speech impediment which made it hard for him to learn the language, Duku struggled in school and was occasionally bullied. He later developed the characteristics of the bullies and started getting into fights. As a result, Duku was sent away from his school for fighting.
Having had overcome all these challenges and with the desire to inspire and empower individuals to see life from a different perspective, Duku started following his dream of becoming a speaker in his bathroom. He knew that that wasn’t the best way to start. But Duku believes that whenever you have a dream, a goal or an idea, you don’t need to be great to start but you need to get started to be great. He is a living testament of this belief as ever since starting, Duku has been invited and travelled to various conferences, events and schools to inspire and empower individuals from different walks of life. As well as having had been invited to represent Australia at the Youth Assembly at the United Nation’s Headquarters in New York.
In the community, Duku is known as a doer and a getter. His positive attitude and appetite for learning is what sets him apart. His motivation and enthusiasm to help and share what he has is incredible. As Duku continues to chase after his dreams and make strides in societal change, one thing is for certain – he is someone to look out for in the near future.
