WHO I AM:

I am a disruptor of status quo.

By my 22nd birthday, I was licensed as a Lawyer, certified as a yoga instructor, and had founded 2 companies with global reach and clientele – one of them being a law firm.

I have work experience advocating on the front lines of human trafficking, teaching yoga and self care workshops, curating events for young African women in major universities across the continent, and serving as legal counsel for some new innovative social enterprises.

I believe in embracing our collective multifaceted nature, doing work that has impact, and that we can change the world.

Age, glass ceilings, and stereotypes don't stop me.

WHAT I'M ABOUT: 

The intersection of justice and kindness.
Re-defining the practice of law with innovation and empathy.
Re-powering Women.
Yoga.
Accessible self care.
Telling African stories.
Love for self, others, the Divine, and the earth.
Advocating for the end of human right violations against women and children.
Helping Africans get over colonialism and self govern productively.
Equity.
Restorative Justice.
Wielding power for good.
Exploring Creativity.

 

WHERE I SEE MYSELF IN  5  YEARS:

Shattering some glass ceiling, traveling the world with the man I love, and our baby sitting on my hips.

LETS CHANGE THE WORLD TOGETHER?
