Youth Empowerment

There is no doubt the power of the youth and the amplification technology provides. I strongly believe that we must be empowering the youth to achieve the UN SDGs and beyond

Social Entrepreneruhsip

Social impact cannot be a after-thought when it comes to building a growing business that must survive. I am particularly keen to advocate for high rigour and standards to impact measurment versus current status quo.

Education for All

In many ways, education has been intrgral and the reason I am here today. Launching ZNotes at 16 was recognising that education is a right, not a privelege. An educated population with a change-making attitude is necessary for the survival of our planet.
