How a Public Health Professional made her way to The Athena Advisors’ Racing Upwards fellowship
My career journey has taken me on many meandering paths over the years, with the majority of my roles being tangential. Looking back, what I have been grateful for is the confluence of serendipitous events and encounters with inspirational people: these have steered me onto a course of giving back and reconnected me to my continent of heritage.
Science and doing something good
A series of turnkey events
The simplest ideas can be transformational
Talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not
Through the Racing Upwards fellowship, I look forward to expanding my nonprofit network, increasing my fundraising skills and cascading the knowledge I gain to others, so that they too can seize opportunities that aid in the betterment of Africa.
