I am a Legal practitioner and a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

I have close friends and family members living with sickle cell anemia,  however, losing a childhood friend (sister) informed my decision to join Sickle Cell Aid Foundation (SCAF).

I started as a volunteer, before I was elevated to the level of an executive. Being a member of SCAF has exposed me to a lot of things. There have been great wins and a fair number of challenges such as, losing two of our founding members and friends (Nura & Awele). However, I believe these are part of the things that feed our drive to help the society and break through sickle cycle.
