I am a child of the universe! No less than the trees and the stars. I have a role in letting my star shine and holding hands of other women and girls so that together we can light up the world. My drive, passion, and mission to make the world a better place especially a place where for women and girls find their inner power and challenge prevailing inequalities. I have professional and 'heart' experience working at empowering women and girls, and take great pleasure in mentoring young women, girls and boys. I have expertise in gender and gender-based violence and women's rights. I agitate for women and girls to be safe and dignified, to share the space in the global world. I will hold a hand if need be, as I have also walked on the shoulders of great women. I am a daughter, a mother, a sister, a friend, and many more.
My vision is a united world where women and girls do not ask for permission to light up the world.
I aspire to link with others on resources relevant to women and girls in the Horn of Africa and more so, those displaced by conflict
I have over 18 years of working experience in development and humanitarian context supporting programs on women's empowerment, gender & GBV
