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.

I qualified as Women Deliver Small Grantee for Hold Her Hand Campaign in 2020 and 2022.I also featured on Radio (ZIFM) and on an International Newspaper (Global Press) in 2021 for the same campaign. In addition I created, hosted and coordinated Royal Deity Motivational Events namely Unfreezing event in 2018 and Bring it on 2020 event in 2019. I also qualified and participated in Youth leadership development course held by Youth Empowerment and Transformational Trust (YETT) in 2019. I co-hosted a talk show called Unpacking Series in June 2021. I also host and creating content for Hey You series podcast and blog since 2020.
