However, my commitment extends far beyond personal accolades. I am a Social Impact Advocate, leading impactful digital literacy outreach programs and championing STEM education through an incubator program that is revolutionizing rural education.

On a personal front, my dedication to education shines through in my scholarship program, which has supported over 100 learners over the past decade. Furthermore, I’ve conducted educator empowerment workshops, reflecting my relentless pursuit of raising the bar in education.

Today, as an Innovation Catalyst at Campus of Things, I continue to fuel innovation and drive success in the realms of education and technology.
