UVU Africa helped me transform from an Engineer and into a CEO. What I learnt has been critical to the success of my business and my personal development. I made lifelong friends and created memories that will live forever.

I am grateful for the connections I made with other female business owners, understanding their stories and working with each to develop our businesses and ways of thinking.
