I am 53 years old and a first time college student! I am blessed to be the mother of a unique little boy who has grown into an amazing young man. I am in the Social Work program and an activist focusing on women's issues and the environment. I enjoy the privilege of volunteering my efforts in working with Neema Namadamu and her group of grassroots women leaders, Maman Shujjaa - Swahili for "Hero Women." In fact, I am presently planning a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo this summer to work side by side with these incredible women!. I am blessed.
