What is your story?

What drives your work?

I am driven by the desire for gender equality, social transformation and seeing women and girls making strides in their lives. My country is very patriarchal and I grew up in that system seeing the disparities between women and men. That has really been a source of and point of interrogation of the institutionalized systems that impact on women and girls' progress.

Describe your biggest strength as a leader

I am a very giving leader - what I know and have, I share with others. I am also very encouraging and an enabler but very firm in how I lead.

Describe your biggest challenge as a leader

The lack of ability to know when to give up on something. I think I take too long to throw in the towel.
