Profile Biography 
As the CEO of eWirecommunications, my focus is on K-12 STEM education and driving social policies that will ensure girls and women have equal access to education, personal autonomy and personal safety so that they can fulfill their potential.

We have to think differently about how we educate young girls in order to prepare them for the realities of the work place. We must not only inspire and encourage young girls to pursue their dreams in whatever shape it takes, we must educate them about the red flags of potentially violent and abusive relationships, the resources available to help them escape if need be and the necessary resources to equip them with relevant up-to-date skills so that they can re/integrate into society and become fully functional leaders in the community.

In inspiring young girls and women to reach for the stars, we must educate them of potential land mines along the way and the available safety net in the community. Violence against women and girls is a real threat to the public health. These issues are rarely openly discussed.

I run a STEM Mentoring Academy where I collaborate with different community partners to incorporate Personal Safety, Peace (Conflict-Resolution), leadership education into STEM camps.

I am available for speaking engagements. Check me up on :
