About Me

I am a journalist, writer and gender equality and women's rights campaigner. Writing is my passion and I use my pen/keyboard to highlight the many issues affecting women and children whereever they are. I also enjoy reading about these issues. Writing means a lot to me. I believe by writing these things we are not only changing lives, healing wounds but closing that gap that exists between us as humans. By speaking up we are not only healing others but ourselves too.

Personally, I have learned and develop myself through other people. Thanks to the internet, particularly social media and forums like World Pulse, I have been able to read stories of other women that inspires me to continue doing the work I do. Through digital media, I have networked with loads of other women across geographical boundaries whose works and activism inspires me greatly. I have reached out to many people.

My Vision

I envision a world where everyone is free to speak up against the issues they feel strongly about.
