Why is this important to you?I am passionate about education, specifically early childhood education, and believe that with early brain interventions we can change the face of education for the world and ultimately poverty. Poverty is the world’s greatest challenge and in South Africa. It is considered as one of the country’s triple threats (alongside unemployment and inequality). Approximately 63% of young children in South Africa live in poverty which affects their physical, cognitive and emotional development. Shortfalls and gaps in early childhood development are difficult to correct which means that these children are always going to school at a disadvantage and playing catch up.
As a woman of empowerment, what is your "Magic"?Dreams do come true – If you can dream it you can do it! The power to be happy lies in your own hands. Take charge of your life with grace, strength and confidence.
