Overview Of Your Professional Profile
I am a lawyer, Chartered Secretary and Chartered Administrator with over twenty years working experience having worked in aviation, media, not for profit and think tanks.

Greatest Passion
The desire to make use of all my God-given talents and skills and to go to the grave ’empty’. Also, the desire to be a source of inspiration to my children and other young ladies starts the journey of the woman’s maze that is career, family, faith and self.

Mission And Vision of Pathfinders International Limited
Our mission is to provide unique aviation security services in an environment that fosters teamwork,
continuous improvement, growth, viability, and great satisfaction to our clients.
Our vision is to become the foremost and most outstanding aviation security service provider in Africa.

This year theme for international Women’s Day
Charity they say begins at home. We women must believe in ourselves, support ourselves, invest in ourselves before asking the world to invest in us. We must seek to continuously improve to become the best version of ourselves and to add value in every environment we find ourselves. The world has come a long way in properly positioning women to contribute on the table but there is still so much more that we can do together to do even more and we can start by seeking knowledge and setting personal goals.

Impact of Social Media On The Female Gender
If there is an increase or not, I will leave that to those collating the data. What I do know in that there is an increase of awareness and report of such cases on social media. Social media like every other medium has its positives and negatives. The negatives may include exposing the children to sexual content way before parents and care givers were ready to discuss such content with the child either male or female. So yes, social media can be negative to the child if not properly controlled and supervised.

Managing Your Home, Office And Other Social Responsibilities
I regularly write and follow my ‘To Do List’. I am very conscious of how I spend my time otherwise 24 hours in the day would not be enough.
