Keturah Shammah
Posted December 23, 2020 from Nigeria


It all started with an email from World Pulse thus;

"...Thank you for completing the Mentoring Orientation! We are reaching out today with great news...we have a match for you! Keturah, meet your mentor Kirthi....."

Deep within me I knew she was more than a mentor. And yes, she confirms that. 

Kirthi is someone who embodies the essence of World Pulse.

She lifts my spirit up with her inspiring ideas.

She speaks with me from what she believes is best for me.

She Listens to me with empathy and without any sense of judgment.

She is always there for me anytime I seek her attention.

She keeps aside her personal interest  and seek after my personal transformation.

She is not just trustworthy. She is a reliable Mentor, Coach, Sister and a Friend.

She is a connector. She connects me with relevant resources, tools, materials and stakeholders that will aid my personal and professional development.

She uses technology and leads my path to d same much more effectively than I ever imagine. 

She is passionate about making a difference in my life and that of the girls and young women I serve.

She is working tirelessly round the clock to ensure my vision in 2021 come to pass. 

And that's why I called her " A MENTOR LIKE NO OTHER". 

It is never an exaggeration for me to say KIRTHI is the best of all best nominee for the WorldPulse Spirit Award!

Dear Keturah,
What a well deserved nomination for a phenomenal World Pulse sister. Thank you for the extra "inside look" at the kind of care and attention Kirthi brings to everything she does. It is empowering just to think of the conversations you two strong and determined women have.

Dear Sis,
I am not going to join my nomination of your amazing mentor here, but the bliss is that I have wanted to nominate her ever since the award was launched, but kept being carried away. Today I am set on nominating sisters, only for me to have forgotten her name only remembering all the wonderful work I was reading on from her write ups hahahahaha. And to think she nominated me too, wow what a pleasant coincidence.
We all got great mentors although I wouldn't argue with you that yours is the best hahahaha
In love and sisterhood
