What Are You Most Passionate About?

I love reading. It allows me to learn a lot. Exercising is something I enjoy too. I exercise daily & it keeps me in good health!

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

All the people from Barefoot College who helped us to go to India to become Solar Engineers are my heroes. We are now opening our own training center and it would not have been possible without them.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

I love listening to the sound of birds. Especially parrots, because when I say something, they always follow me.

What project would a laptop help you with? Give a short description.

Barefoot Zanzibar Training Center. Our center empowers rural women as leaders for their community and trains them as Solar Engineers and Entrepreneurs.

What do you love about this project?

What I love most is to see our Solar Light shining in the night. Bringing light to people who had no electricity is something really magic!

What Languages do you speak?

Swahili, English and a little Hindi
