What made you want to apply for a Blood:Water internship?
From the outside looking in, the culture at Blood:Water, where the theme of family and togetherness is at the forefront, excites me. The chance to be part of an organization that works with African-led partners that have a great impact on the communities within my country was a chance I didn’t want to miss.
What is your dream job?
To lead my own consultancy firm.
What is your favorite book and why?
I like a lot of biographies, especially about sports people.
What is your favorite pastime?
Playing and watching sports.
If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Tell us one of your special quirks!
Some say I am extremely optimistic and inquisitive (Batman-like).
