Why you should listen

I am here to challenge and inspire my audience about living a passionate and purposely life. I will also be presenting some rhetorics and offering plausible solutions to the socio economic wellbeing of our nations.  Africa is at a crossroad.

On one side the hope of Africa rising, and on the other side a myriad of corruption, abuse, and disorder looms. My talk will offer solutions on individual responsibility, leadership and cultural cohesiveness to make our continent work for us.

Quote from Princess

“Your dreams can come true if you have the knowledge, the courage, and voltage to reach for them” – Princess Umul Hatiyya
