Being in a wheelchair made me question life.  I don’t have any excuses for things I cannot do, and my strength is seen and not heard.  As brand ambassadors for #Team Free Sanitary, we donate one of the most basic requirements any young woman needs – sanitary pads.  In most communities and at schools, millions of South African school girls don’t have access to sanitary pads as they cannot afford them.  Many needy girls are from child-headed homes where there is no one to talk to and educate them on the basic information regarding sexual health.  

With my project, I intend to offer basic health education and free sanitary pads.


With my project I intend to offer basic health education and free sanitary pads to young girls coming from different backgrounds.  I’m also the brand ambassador of Madiba Media Productions. I am very passionate. My mission is to reduce the drop-out rates of students in higher education.  I achieve this by meeting the financial needs of students by offering scholarships, workshops, and sponsorships in a warm and welcoming environment.

#ImStaying for my country. The world needed more of me and God is not yet done in using me, as I’m that little pencil in the hands of a writing God sending a message to the world.
