About Me: 

I am a young woman, even though compared to my sisters, I am older. I am a Sociologist. Studying Sociology was the best thing that happened to me as it ahs impacted my work and life tremendously. am passionate about women, gender and social justice. I co-founded the orgnaization I work for and am its driving force.I believe that as an older person I have a responsiblity to nurture young people so i demand the best from the yound peopl I work with. This isnt nice for them, I know but standards of harwork, committment, passion, meticousness and smart quick thinking cannot be compromised. i think of my self as a gender expert and dare to call myself a gender auditor having undergone the training at the ITC Turin! I am currently undergoing a professional teacher trianing at the post graduate level so i can better deliver my training sessions as well as become a professional teacher

My Passions: 
Women, Social justice
My Challenges: 
dealing with younger people who do not seem to have a vision of anything or tommorrow but are only concerned witht eh now and mundane, dealing with men and women who restrict you because of your sex
