I also pose a good planning skills and analytical ability with the aptitude to handle matter of highly sensitive and complex nature in a concise and precise manner. I am able to communicate effectively with a board section of people and have a desire of working with the poorest community and believe in team work by positively influencing others, creating acceptance and support for ideas. I am also computer literate and have excellent skills in data collection and presentation

My Vision

I see myself as a Global Citizen advocating for human right, women and children's rights, and mediating between communities by stimulating community sense and support solving conflicts at neighborhood level. Would be strongly working to create new ideas and solution to issues of gender bases violence in my country and the World at large

Been a victim of a university gang rape and teenage pregnancy, backed up with the drastic increased in school dropout rate due to teenage pregnancy and early marriage after our country's Ebola crisis, and biasness involved in reporting such case and the stigma attached to victims, I decided to use my background in communication to advocated for victims and used my story to motivate, inspire teenage victims to know that there is life after every challenge and enabling them to get back to normal as they fulfill their purposes in life.
