I am like a mixed Valencian Paella, a variety of ingredients all in one dish. In me you will find the artistic streak of Sir Christopher Wren, the knowledge, curiosity, and discipline of Benjamin Franklin, the adventurous nature of Marco Polo, and the unconventional style of Sir Richard Branson. My travels around the world have further confirmed to me that ‘Your dreams can come true if you have the courage, drive, and determination to reach for them’ Princess Umul Hatiyya. I am pro Africa, I know that as a people, we are capable of moving our continent forward. However we can only do this with the right mind set. I will inspire and challenge you to pursue your dreams and contribute to the development of our continent Africa.
