Hello there! I'm Fiston Muganda, an aspiring community servant with a heart deeply rooted in the art of social change. Originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo, I've experienced life as a refugee in Uganda, navigating through systemically imposed challenges with resilience and determination. This unique journey has profoundly shaped my passion for community service, something I've dedicated myself to over the past eight years through various refugee and host community development initiatives.

In my work, I've developed a deep love for community and organizational development, recognizing the power of collective effort in bringing about meaningful change. I'm a bit of a weirdo, with an unquenchable thirst for all things art-based. I find joy in learning in circles and dialogues, especially those that touch on sensitive and potentially painful topics. I firmly believe that it's through mutual learning and sharing, even in the midst of discomfort, that we, as humans and particularly as youth, can navigate life's complexities. This approach allows us to create spaces that are safe, loving, and humane, fostering an environment where individuals can flourish, belong, and evolve.

Currently pursuing my Bachelor of Arts in Human Relations, I am on a gratifying path to gaining a multilayered understanding of community development and human interactions. My focus is on developing community-minded initiatives that center human development at every stage of innovation.

At Grow Still, my goal is to hold space and collaborate with others to blend my passions for the arts (as a dancer myself), psychology, and social activism. I am committed to building a community that is safe, accessible, and future-driven, nurturing young generations and all members of society. It's a journey I approach with enthusiasm and a steadfast belief in the transformative power of community and art in shaping a better world.
