I’m a foodie, I love a lot of different cuisines, but you can never go wrong with some pilau rice, beans, chapati and spinach in groundnut stew YUM!

"Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another."
Besides being a mum and worker, I also enjoy travelling and dancing.
