I am the President of Develop Africa. My work involves oversight of the organization and also managing different projects. I enjoy being able to assist people with potential who need a "hand up" out of their predicament or inability. I am passionate about helping to create opportunities that can truly empower people, helping them get to the next level in their lives. I co-founded the organization in 2006.
