About Me

I was born and raised in Cameroon. In 2010, I earned a BA in English from the University of Yaoundé 1. I also earned a Master's degree in Feminist African Literature from the same University. I wanted to become a social activist, feminist African writer and media person due to the growing challenges affecting women’s lives everyday in Africa. Africa being a continent of strong, fearless, endearing, friendly and inspiring people, and Cameroon, making part of it with its rich history of diverse ethnic groups, languages, culture and colonialism, continue to face most of the world’s troubling issues, with women and children greatly affected by trafficking, rape, child abuse, forced migration, poverty and turmoil, and have been of great concern for me. In 2014, I co-founded the Women’s Welfare Foundation (WoWF), Cameroon. It is a non-for profit organization with the mission to empower widows, teenage mothers and orphans. My desire is to impact lives through transformational andsociet change

My Vision
