Activist, Digital Media Strategist & Entrepreneur
I use three words to describe what I do: People, Technology, and Transformation. My day to day job is very diverse and engaging; most of the time I am on my laptop corresponding with team members and coordinating projects. Aside from that, I am an ICT professional by training and my main skill is in Web development, computer networks, and digital media (social media) strategy. As an Entrepreneur and a young person affected by conflict, I am uniquely placed to understand the needs of underprivileged youth and displaced people. I do understand the need for building a sustainable and a peaceful environment that will enable the youth to thrive and seek a better future.
