Why did you join the Rise Up Leadership Council?

The opportunity to learn from the “rockstars” of the girls’ education & empowerment space

As an avid connector, I love hosting Rise Up leaders like Achie Gebre in my home and gathering the Leadership Council and all of our broader networks to learn from them.

What has been your favorite Leadership Council experience?

Participating in an intimate presentation skills workshop with a teenage Memory Banda, one of the young leaders behind Malawi’s recent law prohibiting child marriage. Only months later, Memory spoke at TED Women!
