RAYELLA WEEKS

About Me: 

2014 will be the year of my graduation and the affirmation of my intellectual ability. This is important for someone like me. If you are a high school dropout, have a history of mental illness; have not made a whole lot of money or married into it. If you are divorced and portray a host of other social failures, then it becomes important that you are able to authenticate your identity as a person who is able to operate on the level of normality or perhaps sub-normality, required to pass exams. Having two successful children is inadequate; as they are simply ascribed to the father’s genes or some other quirk of life. Oh, of course, doing it at 57 years old is a bit of delayed action but I was so busy working through the mentioned experiences and raising the children, I just did not get round to it.

My Passions: 
Championing the underdog.
My Challenges: 
survival necessitates earning a living and squndering valueable time.
My Vision for the Future: 
Building a forum where support can be given to women and children to change their lives.
My Areas of Expertise: 
BA Psychological counselling by the end of the year. published magazine stories, volunteer fundraiser website administrator for Zimcare Trust,
My Languages: 
English, NIL
