Passionate about giving back to the community and paying it forward by investing both my time and finances into community upliftment

I am extremely passionate about giving back, this was ignited by seeing my mom doing her bit to uplift the community when I was younger and I decided to follow suit. I have experience with developing partnerships with a range of organisations with the aim of securing funding for our non-profit organisation. Over the years, I have becoming accustomed to working autonomously and devising a pipeline of work; identifying prospects, building relationships and ultimately asking for donations. I believe I am a natural networker with excellent communication skills. One of my mantras and favorite quotes is by Denzel Washington, “At the end of the day, it’s not about what you have or even what you’ve accomplished. It’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”

What do you feel people take for granted the most?

Food. So many people are starving yet for those who get to eat daily, they end up wasting food just because they can't finish it.

Health. Most of us are not health conscious and we feed our mind with negativity and our body with junk food.

I agree with that. We also tend to ignore the people that's always with us.

The good things. We always focus on the bad things that are happening in the world and in our life that we take for granted all the blessings that we have in our lives.

Freedom of speech. They complain about anything and everything. You can't even do that in some countries.

We often take our family for granted because we think they're always there for us.

That's true. I am guilty of doing that most of the times especially to my parents because I know that they will always be there for me no matter what.

Number one is the people they love. Secondly, their health. Third, is the blessings that they always receive.

I feel that people often take for granted the freedom and liberties that they enjoy. Most people are blissfully ignorant about the plight of other people in other countries.
