I was listed as of the top 30 innovators in Africa in 2018 by Quartz Africa. I was the keynote

feel very blessed to have shared a podium with him as one of my role models.
I must confess I am a workaholic but that said, I love to sleep. When I am not sleeping or
working, then I enjoy Yoga, meditation, listening to podcasts and wine tasting. I also enjoy
washing utensils, I find it to be mental therapy (I am weird, right?).
