Although she has lived, worked and studied in several developing nations including Kenya, Mexico and Turkey, still, Mozambique is one of her favorite places in the world. She aspires to make a unique and lasting impact in the areas of philanthropy and research in southern Africa, specifically focused on bringing donor investment into the region through causes that are near and dear to her heart.
