What ignited your pursuit for gender equality?

The passion I have to change people's lives, especially women. We live in a country where many women do not know about their rights and gender equality. I aspire to see women know the power they possess.

Please share your biggest wins as an advocate for gender equality.

In December 2019, I organized the Bring it on 2020 event, which focused on equipping people for 2020. It had female presenters from founders of organizations such as Women Association of Survivors, which focuses on gender-based violence, to entrepreneurs and speakers. This was important to me because it showed the world that women can lead if given enough support.

Outside of your gender equality advocacy work, what do you enjoy doing?

Composing songs and singing, reading books, and attending church.
