Now I Am Known, Seen, and Heard- PETER MUTABAZI Part TWO

Season 2, Ep. 2
Part 2 Interview with Peter MutabaziAs a child I ran away from an abusive home and was helped by the kindness of strangers. As an adult I found myself in a position of being able to help foster children, so I began taking children into my home years ago to give back what was so freely given to me. It's my mission to give back as much as I can to the vulnerable among us. That's what drives Now I Am Known: to bring a message of hope to the hopeless, the same message I needed so badly to hear as a child. That is why we will be partnering with foster care agencies to give away a plush puppy with the message "Now I Am Known, Seen, and Heard" to at-risk children across the country.I WAS ONE OF THEMI am Peter Mutabazi And this is my story.As a child in Uganda, I grew up with shelter, food and clothing scarcity. But more than that, I grew up with safety scarcity. I feared for my life from a father who threatened me, and frequently called me “garbage” and “useless.” Parents are supposed to protect their children. When my father didn’t, I ran away from home to live on the streets in Kampala. Four years of doing whatever I needed to survive, a young couple:… saw me… heard me… told me I wasn’t alone… and showed me that I mattered.They sent me to school. They put a roof over my head. They clothed me. And fed me three meals a day. And allowed me to be a child. So I could grow up to do the same for others.I decided to do for other children what this one couple did for me.📒 GET THE BOOK NOW I AM KNOWN 📒Find Peter on social mediaYouTube Facebook Foster Dad FlipperInstagram @fosterdadflipper〰️〰️Shanny 👖〰️〰️YouTubeFacebookInstagramTikTokwww.ShannyPantsShow.com

The One Where It's all About Me

Since birth, I have had the unbelievable advantage to be immersed in a very multicultural environment. Parents of different nationalities, and moving countries every couple of years opened my eyes to the world. I couldn’t wish for a richer life. I learned the art of striking a conversation from a very young age, curious about cultures and communities, questioning everything and everyone across my path, in what I believe is an attempt to understand what guides behaviors and opinions. ​As I started building a family of my own, and as a direct reflection of my life choices, I found myself settling in the Netherlands.  ​But the urge to meet new people and change surroundings had to be met. That urge manifested itself every few years through my longing for new beginnings. I temporarily satisfied this urge by moving house. When my family got larger, I changed jobs. ​With it, I found myself surrounded by people with fabulous diverse individual stories and passionately driven by their personal aspirations. ​They are my inspiration.  NagzAbout the PodcastI have always imagined life as a tree.Born from the roots you inherit and raised in a system you experience, there comes a time where you face the necessity of making choices as you grow. At each intersection, you get a number of possible branches to jump on. If you visualize this, you can see the endless possibilities that lie ahead of you. In life though, you discover the strength and abundance of the knots, twigs, branches and leaves, only when you have chosen a path or started your journey.  And you do it with the hope that it will lead you to a place of personal flourishing, closer to blue skies and the warm shining sun.  This podcast series is all about sharing our stories. The failures, the successes, the choices we made and what we want to do next. It’s a means to inspire others and a way to be held accountable.
