“In my career to date, I have worked with a lot of girl learners in secondary schools and female university students from different backgrounds. From interacting with them, I got first-hand experience with their social and academic challenges. As a FAWEZI NEC Member, I am committed to making my contribution towards the achievement of gender equity and equality in education through targeted programs as well as adding my voice to influence government policy on these matters.
I strongly believe in the old African proverb, “If you educate a man, you educate an individual, but if you educate a woman, you educate a family/nation”.
