I am a passionate advocate of education for women and girls, as the most important tool to escape poverty and avoid early or forced marriages.

Born and raised in a small rural village on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro, I am the oldest of 12 siblings and assumed a leadership role in a humble family at a young age. By taking advantage of any educational opportunity offered to me, I earned a degree in Accounting and Social Work. My educational path offered me security from an early forced marriage, and I am dedicated to providing this opportunity to other young girls through my home region.

I have been dedicated to work with international volunteer organizations since 1994, where I’ve seen the impact that volunteers can have on promoting the importance of girl’s education to families, and giving every girl the chance she deserves to pursue her dreams.
