Working with Mentivity
Mentivity has core values that align with my goals and visions in terms of empowering young people. I have always been passionate about guidance and motivation as well as positively impacting the lives of others.
Mentivity has been instrumental in the communities they work in and continue to be a beacon of light to all who come into contact with their programmes and I want to be part of that legacy and light.
Young people need great role models and people who have been in their shoes, people they can relate and look up to. By sharing my life lessons and the things I myself have overcome I hope to continue to pour into young people and give them the opportunity to achieve their true potential.
