About Me: 

I am a wife, mother to 3 children, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I believe in living life to the fullest. I strive to do that everyday and to ensure that I do my part to ensure everyone lives to their fullest potential. I have been an activist for as long as I can remember. My passion is women's human rights, especially domestic violence, because I believe that charity begins at home, and every child should have a safe place to call home. I work as a community organizer in the inner city of Minneapolis - North Minneapolis. It is a vibrant and diverse community facing many challenges, but with very many opportunities and possibilities. This month, I put a new slant in my work - 'gender based organizing'. I am interested in organizing women in the spaces in which they already exist in (as care givers, in domestic sphere, professional, religious, etc.), and organizing and framing issues through a feminist lens.

My Passions: 
Justice
My Challenges: 
Prioritizing. So much, so little time.
My Vision for the Future: 
Equity for all.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Women's rights, community development, public speaking, organizaitonal development
My Languages: 
English, Swahili
