About Me

I am an independent journalist and women`s rights activist.I run a local not for profit in Cameroon called Gender Danger that works to fight dehumanizing cultural practices against women in the country.Our current mission is a campaign against Breast Ironing.Ensuring that women are empowered through obtaining sound eduction and equal opportunities in all spheres of life is what I was born for,what I live for and what I will die for.I believe we cannot change the phases of life but can use every opportunity we have to change the faces of the people around us no matter where we find ourselves.My love for women,children and free speech is unquenchable no matter where destiny places me,my strength will always be dedicated to these three.
