About Me: I come from the eastern part of the Solomon Islands, brought up in a community and spend my child hood life in my remote village with my grandparents. Spend my primary education there and managed to go further my education. Out of many girls I obtain further education and now a woman. Looking back to my community everything is just the same just the way I see in my child hood days thus having a strong heart to assist unfortunate women at my age who once were my school mate but luck further education.

My Passions: To give equal equiped knowledge and skills for other women

My Challenges: Access to funds to women activities

My Vision for the Future: See all women equip with required capacity to raised educated daughters

My Areas of Expertise: Working with Local Women
