Favorite song lyric
from "Keep Ya Head Up" by 2Pac

"And since a man can't make one,
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one,
So will the real men get up,
I know you're fed up ladies, but you gotta keep your head up."

One surprising fact
I am a brilliant whistler

Why WaterAid?
At WaterAid I am in service to those whose voices are not always heard, whose needs are not always met, and whose rights are frequently overlooked. Through policy and advocacy I can help provide universal access to clean water, toilets, and hygiene services so women and girls won’t have to look for a safe place to go to the bathroom, or spend hours away from school to fetch water for their families, or become ill from unclean homes or germs on their hands.
