Vocational Story :

I decided to pursue educational research and international and development education as a way of advocating for marginalized communities in the developed and the developing world for which access to quality education remains a dream and, therefore, continue to suffer political, economic, social and cultural marginalization.



Gardening, cooking, traveling, and sightseeing.
