Empowering women to develop their career path

What I'm Leading

I want women to see periods of change as a wonderful opportunity for growth and to be unapologetic about their lives. I want women to know that the best way to prepare for these changes is to proactively take time for self-reflection. i want women to see career planning as important and be able to access career resources and advice. Also, I want women to be financially independent, because without it women do not have a voice. I want to create a community of women who are willing to share stories of their journeys to purpose and financial independence through a call for stories and videos.

Who I'm Impacting

Women in all stages of their lives, and who are going through life transitions. As well as young women looking to build a future career

Bio

About Me

Daughter, wife, mom, Adire (tye-dye) aficionado. A highly motivated individual. I believe in making the lives of those around me great in the word of Albert Schwetzer - "in everyone's life at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being..." My purpose is to motivate others to aspire to greatness and bring focus to their purpose in life. Hold a degree in Adult Education, PGD in Public Relations and Advertising.

My Vision

The days of limits are over , opportunities I have are not freely available to many. My aim is to empower women and girls to believe in the validity of their person and inspire them to discover purpose and see life beyond just getting married and having children. I hope to open a career centre where people can come in and receive guidance and direction. A place where aimlessness and hopelessness can be dispelled. A support centre because i believe that education is not just filling a bucket, it is lighting a fire.
