I joined the VCPB because I am deeply passionate about our young people and their development. Our young people deserve to live without fear, stigmatisation and have a fair chance to succeed. This board is willing to stand up and give young people that chance. To fight on their behalf.
I want to work with other like-minded individuals who believe the same. To take the action necessary to ensure there is a change in the narrative and our young people are safe, educated and able to live fulfilling lives. I believe that faith has a powerful part to play in providing solutions to our society’s problems and that we need a multi faith approach to violent crime prevention.
Faith is not only a support to the families that are victims of crime but it provides answers and hope of a better future for all. I hope that by bringing faith communities together to pray, engage and work in partnership we can be a much needed voice for our communities and a place of safety and transformation.
I believe my life experience from being an at risk youth to a Businesswoman, Minister, Mentor and Mother of 4, my education, community and faith work as well as my 15 years’ business experience can provide support, strategic thinking and influence for the board and help in facilitating the linking of faith, community and young people.
I am excited to take the action needed to make a difference and drive the vision of VCPB forward to champion progress.
