Allan Mongo

My name is Allan Monga, I am twenty two years old, and I was born and raised in Zambia. I moved to the U.S.A in the summer on 2017 and I speak eight languages (English, Bemba, Kaunde, Nyanja, Lozi, Zulu, Luvale, Swahili, and Shona). I have two older sisters and two younger sisters which makes me the only boy and middle child. I have a strong and irreplaceable relationship with my family, especially my mother. My favorite subjects in high school included English, drama and speech, and biology. When I am not spending time with my family or working, I am at the gym to stay in shape. During high school, I had the privilege to be a part of a youth development program called Poetry Out Loud, a recitation platform owned by the National Endowment for the Arts for high school students from all over America. The Maine Arts Commission runs the program in Maine. I worked very closely with the Maine Arts Commission and Poetry Out Loud over the last three years. I have partnered with them to create videos demonstrating to new participants how to properly recite poems. Also, this year I was honored to emcee of the Poetry Out Loud state competition. I have learned more about myself, other people, and other cultures as well. I have learned what people believe in and fight for. As well, I have learned to stand up for myself and others and to make sure your voice is always heard. I am confident that these developments have played a huge role in my life and shaped me into the person I am today.
