I am the co-founder of Her Voice, originally from Long Beach, California, USA and worked as a hairstylist until I moved to South Africa in 2011 to work as a missionary to teenaged girls in the township of Kayamandi in Stellenbosch, Western Cape. That is where I met my South African husband, Odwa and we now have 2 daughters and a son coming this October.
We have done worked together in Kayamandi since we met in 2011 and our goals are to build bridges between people who have been divided by racial, economic or social status, and to empower them to take ownership of their own communities.
