Of the many things I am thankful for, World Pulse wears the crown. One of the biggest reasons for this joy I feel today is my time and bond with Keturah Shammah, who I had the privilege to be matched with in a mentorship.
In the short span of time that we worked together, Keturah has fought some really difficult and challenging battles that included major security challenges in Nigeria. When I say that she braved through it all, I don't want to merely reduce the monumental work and effort she put in every day into an oversimplifies equation of courage and bravery, but really strive to appreciate the stellar, living example of resilience that she is.
Keturah's vision is for her community, her people, and the world that will continue to move on long after us. In this, her dedication to building her legacy is far more than an act of serving: it is THE benchmark of service.
The past few months of working with Keturah has been a powerful experience: she may be my mentee on paper, but she taught me so much more than I could ever imagine.
Thank you, Keturah. With all my heart.
