I chose this field to position myself as a vibrant, visible and trusted public servant who is able to help corporations manage their legal issues before they mature into risks such as financial exposure and reputational risks. I aspire to:

  • -Inspire efficiency, commitment and effectiveness in the workplace;

  • -Realise my purpose and thrive in a male dominated industry (telecommunications) and show the girl child it is possible to realise our purpose if we keep at it; and

  • -Contribute to good public management and governance.
