In 2010, my heart led me back to Africa, where I found my calling in the NGO sector. I dedicated my efforts to Invisible Children, working passionately to make a positive impact in the lives of others. Later, as a program coordinator for Operation Smile in various sub-Saharan African countries, I had the privilege of facilitating life-saving surgeries for children born with cleft lip and cleft palates. Witnessing the transformation in their lives was truly humbling and fulfilling. Now, I have the incredible opportunity to combine my love for Africa with my passion for travel. As a Luxury Travel Advisor for Africa, I am thrilled to utilize my extensive knowledge and experiences to curate unforgettable journeys for your clients. Having explored and cherished this continent firsthand, I love creating personalized and authentic travel experiences that cater to your clients unique interests and desires.
