I’m passionate about understanding humanity and the environment we live in. I want our generation to be known for something incredible. I graduated in journalism and public relations, I have a blog where I document and write about environmental issues affecting the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC). I have had the privilege of visiting Scotland, Italy and South Africa. Because traveling to me is adventurous; especially making new friends. In addition to writing about arts, environment and culture, I also advocate for women’s rights and empowerment in the Southern part of Africa.
