I am a mom of two children under ten years, a beautiful boy and girl, married to a tall handsome dude and these are my biggest motivators for getting involved with Commonsense as a Certified Educator.
I am a Digital Marketing Advisor and Technopreneur by profession, an ex International NGO Accountant with 12 years of experience who did a drastic career shift and am self-taught to do my current role. Excited to share that I am a registered UN Consultant, award-winning Digital Marketing & Skills expert that is all out passionate about empowering tech users to maximise tech for good and creating access to digital life skills. I believe in harnessing tech and the internet to improve the quality of life through sharing tips, tools, knowledge, content & information on how to achieve this.
As a philanthropist at heart, being part of this meant besides working with young people, women and MSMEs (Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises) to maximise tech & digital skills for career, business and income growth, I also got to contribute to empowering students & families to thrive online in a Digital World. Tech can make a difference and I am utterly convinced that we can make a difference by working with young people to navigate tech responsibly. We can lose a whole generation if we do not take the initiative to walk the journey with the young people.
Whilst it may seem overwhelming because for some parents, educators and guardians we are discovering things at the same time with the young people and sometimes feel afraid, it is critical that we take this head on and lock arms to work together. Tech has massive benefits that far outweigh the negatives - it's about mastering it, being intentional about how we use it and fostering a goal-oriented approach about using it productively.
