I met Ayla in December 2014 and started working with her in January 2015 until April 2016. All this time, Ayla was a great source of inspiration, motivation and a good role model of leadership. Having worked with Ayla, I really feel like I am one of the Resonate family.
In Rwandan culture, shyness for Rwandan girls is considered as a good quality which is very detrimental for Rwandan girls' professional and economic growth. I am extremely thankful for the work that resonate is doing. I know it's not an easy thing to uproot the tradition which has been in place for ages and ages but I am confident that one day Rwandan girls will stop compromising with old traditions and gain confidence. I very happy that Resonate is now considering engaging men in the work of gender balance. Just very proud of you Ayla and Resonate team!
