With over 6 years’ experience of working on social impact projects and initiatives across Africa, South-East Asia, and North America, covering communication for development, education, youth empowerment, and nonprofit management, I provide support to change makers to function effectively at the intersection of purpose and impact.

Leveraging on my experience in social innovation and human capital management, I thrive at contributing my experience in tri-sector leadership to facilitate collaboration with key players in business, government, and the development sector for social good.

Passionate about empowering young people, and representing their interests, I was named African Youth Hero in November 2015 by the African Union Commission, due to the role I play in promoting the rights of young people in Africa. In June 2015, I was selected as part of 100 Brightest Young Minds in Africa by Brightest Young Minds and Barclays Africa, and in March 2017, I was named a finalist for the Nonprofiteer of the Year Award by the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network, New York.

As an Atlas Corps Fellow, I served with Practice Makes Perfect (PMP) and Evaluate for Change (EFC) both in New York, where I honed my experience in social entrepreneurship, youth empowerment, and capacity building.

I am also an Alumni of the prestigious American Express Leadership Academy – Summer 2017 Cohort, which is an executive leadership development program by American Express and facilitated by Points of Light and Center for Creative Leadership.
