Her passion for mentoring stems from the lose of her mum at the young age of 15. She derives great joy in young girls living intentionally and with purpose. She encourages the journey of self discovery with each of her mentees as she believes that when a teenage/ young adult understands their self worth, there is indeed nothing they cannot achieve. She has fantastic dynamic speaking ability to maintain audience attention to presentation as she speaks from the heart .
Guard your heart and be deliberate in seeds you allow to germinate and grow in your mind. You eventually become what you think.
So why teenagers and young adults? Having lost her mum at a tender vulnerable age of 15, she can relate with trying to fill a void in ones life at this age. She also says that family unit is the back bone of any society therefore it is of the utmost importance that we ensure our teenagers and young adults have a true understanding of who they are. It is only when 2 secure and confident individual enter into a union can they be part of building a functional society.
