What do you do at TICAH?
I work within the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights program where I coordinate TICAH’s MAMA Network.
What do you hope your work will do for the community you work with?
I hope that my work will support people at the grassroots to be aware of their reproductive rights, to stand up for their rights and continue a regional movement of grassroots activists in the region through unity and inclusion. The ultimate win will be to see people of all walks of life stand up together to demand access to reproductive rights.
What do you love about TICAH?
Aside from “lunch committee” (lunch discussions at TICAH), I love the sense of togetherness, trust and flexibility to grow at TICAH. The team and the organization’s resilience easily rubs off you.

Who is the person (living or not) you would most like to have dinner with?
I would like to have dinner with King Mokoko. As a Teke with ancestral links to the kingdom, I would like to know more about the roots, my culture and precisely my great-grandpa who was also a Teke King.
