Bio

About Me

Writing is my catharsis. I began to pour out my thoughts using pen and paper when as a child, I was prohibited to speak up.

This is why as a World Pulse Encourager Coach, I’m passionate about helping women feel heard, seen and valued. I believe in the power of owning our stories, and the healing brought by encouragement filled with empathy.

I am a development worker by profession, a graduate of B.S. Community Development with a two-year study in B.S. Applied Mathematics. I’m in the process of completing my Masters of Development Communication.

My professional experience allowed me to explore topics related to environment issues (climate change, etc.) and love for rural communities, especially Indigenous Peoples; while my personal journey led a path to advocate for mental health issues and the special needs community. They thought me how to value inclusion, acceptance and equality.

My Vision

A healed world: healing one woman at a time.❤️

I am still at the planning stage of The Firefly Zone, a safe caring space for women.
