Those closest to me will know that I am no stranger to challenges. Throughout my personal, business, and social life I have encountered many obstacles to what society would tag ‘success’. All of which, looking back, I naively accepted and never really addressed in the best way. My story is not unique, there are many individuals from influential professional people, to social amateurs, and many in between who are displaced due to the challenges they’ve encountered in life.

My social change footprint began 30 years ago when I made a milestone choice that would affect my life for good.  At the time I was in what I now know to be a ‘toxic’ relationship. Things weren’t great between us and I wanted out of the relationship. This prompted an abusive reaction towards me which resulted in him continually stalking me and ultimately tried to kill me.  It was only afterwards that I could clearly see the damning signs.  But nothing could have prepared me for the untimely death of my mother who was the ‘foundation stone’ of my life, someone to look to and rely on to help me bear my load in life. She was amazing and touched many other lives as I found out at her funeral that was attended by over a thousand people. I realised then the importance of owning my own legacy, something positive, I can pass on to the benefit of others.

And at that point, I decided something had to change. It was now going to be ‘All About Me’ – I had to change ‘me’.  I studied psychology and empowerment extensively and singularly set up the first Social Change PR Agency specialising in diversity marketing and race relations, firmly establishing myself as a ‘Social Change-maker’ to inspire, encourage and empower people to ‘be the change they want to see’.

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
