About Me

I am a humble woman. A life-long learner and a teacher at heart; A BSc. in Psychology and diplomas in various disciplines. I am self driven with a passion for purpose as my relationship with God keeps me grounded. I have endured a lot and out of my pain I wanted to connect and support/ mentor other women and or girls who may have experienced abuse. I formed an organisation (support group/NPO) called women of purpose where we can support and empower each other. http://www.facebook.com/womenofpurposett . My favourite go to place is the beach as it stimulates my mind and quiets my spirit. There is something magical about the sound of the ocean. I love reading just about anything that appeals to me. One of my favourite poem is 'Still I Rise' by the amazing Maya Angelou. This poem speaks to me as it is my journey.
