2017: New Management, New Directions!
I can’t believe 2017 is almost at our shores! 2016 was a kaleidoscope of so many different developmental strides, events, collaborations, loss, deaths, re-births, challenges and triumphs. Ultimately, if there was a word to describe 2016 for my team and I, it would be ADVOCACY.
We finally wrapped a couple of advocacy cases in different sectors and embarked on some foundational reforms around sexual abuse in two tertiary institutions.
For 2017, my focus is geared towards social enterprise (specifically, economic empowerment); creating sustainable opportunities for young creatives (through the POETRY4Change platform, in collaboration with Praxis Magazine Online); developing structured mentorship spaces, angel investing synergies and micro-lending platforms for youth in different streams of the social enterprise value chain.
Woohoo!! My poem “TODAY, I WILL NOT BOW”, has now been translated to 17 languages (with an additional 6 languages in the offing). I am grateful to all the translators and to high students who performed it to commemorate the last International Day of the Girl Child.
Are you an individual, secondary school, advocacy or faith-based group etc., interested in performing the poem – “TODAY, I WILL NOT BOW [Together, WE Rise]”, to create awareness and raise funds towards causes that empower women and girls? Join the Movement!

I am also very thrilled to announce that in line with this renewed sense of adventure to seek fresh directions, from 2017, yours truly will be represented by a new management agency –Olive Media Network. I recently had a lovely, (and crazy ) 3+ hour lunch-meeting with the President and CEO of Olive Media Network, the ever bubbly and daring Dianne Ojar-Ali. And I look forward to our partnership in the coming year(s)!
Going forward, if you’re a group or organization interested in booking me for lectures, readings, appearances or speaking engagements, please contact:
