FOUR things that I am passionate about:
Social entrepreneurship – Would be great if more people did things they do everyday for a wider social impact?
Women In Motion – I think women are the key to many of the change! things we are doing – so rather than distract people with terms like empowerment, feminism and other hot words, let me just tell you I love to get women moving towards better, more efficient and equitable outcomes.
Kenya – and Africa : First home land then home area. I recently traveled to Kenya for a short visit and it was immediately clear why I was born to be an African. Such wealth hidden behind such need coupled with vast natural beauty – and the Cradle of mankind – brilliant!
God, My family and friends: I am who I am because I am blessed by an awesome Maker. Family and friends.Would not trade all of them for a minute. Without them, I am just a single stone on a three piece hearth, and they bring the fire for all the other things that I am mad about.
