About Me: 

I am 22 years old female pursuing a bachelor of arts degree in sociology at the University of Zambia,now in my final year.
Having studied women and development,i have taken keen interest in the challenges women in diifferent institutions through out the world. This has led me to rethink having no say at all in ensuring women have equal opprtunity as men in the education sector and also when it comes to employment opportunities. Looking at the world today, women have under representation when it comes to so many issues especially in the political arena, this being the case, most of their challenges are not being addressed. it is due to these issues among others that i want to be one of the voices speaking for women.

My Passions: 
I love children. i have been working with children, especially teenagers in my community.
My Challenges: 
as a women,most people,especially men find it hard to listen to me. there was a time i worked for a hospital as a counselor in the ART center.it was difficult to counsel older people because they feel they know better
My Vision for the Future: 
A world without gender barriers
My Areas of Expertise: 
HIV/AIDS issues,Child welfare and Social welfare
My Languages: 
French, English
