Further to this I have also worked for the GSMA’s Mobile Money Programme where I worked globally with mobile operators and industry stakeholders to increase the utility and sustainability of mobile money services worldwide, boosting financial inclusion for the under-served.

I am passionate about social innovation, creating a positive social impact and driving change. I strongly believe that with passion and purpose we can change the world.
