1. What is the best advice ever received?

Give all you do your best and never be hard on yourself if things don’t work out the way you planned.

2. What gets you out of bed every morning?

My family and my job! I love my family so much and as a responsible mother of three, I know I have to get up and prepare a better living for them. More so, I really love my job very much, knowing that just one minute that I spend working creates an impact on one or more girls in Africa motivates me so much!

3. What are your next milestones?

Scale Apps & Girls activities to Uganda and Ethiopia. Implement a digital tool/ platform that helps or supports teachers across Tanzania to teach coding and mentor leaners to develop tech-driven businesses/innovations. Improve and implement a digital incubator for girls and young women in Apps and Girls operating countries. Organize a Girls Tech entrepreneurship summit for girls and young women to showcase their start-ups, network, learn and compete for prizes across East Africa.

4. What is your best analog moment?

On one of my mini holidays on the sunny beaches of Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar reading a nice novel.
