My Guiding Principles/Manifesto

I am a change agent.

I am social engineer working for the common good.

I believe positive and progressive political change is possible.

I will persistently make the ‘seemly impossible possible’.

I am part of a team that is helping to ‘rethink the purpose of education’ across Africa.

I am part of a team that will bring socio economic change and progress to the continent of Africa & beyond.

I break barriers and ignite possibilities.

I love being uncomfortable, when I start to play it safe, someone should slap me really hard.

I consciously find opportunities to ‘lean into fear’.

Quotes I Live By

Be part of the solution wherever you find yourself.

I cannot wait to meet you.
