As a Girl Guide i have learnt that turning up and doing my best is all i need to do.In my darkest time to turn to God who has given me my family and friends who come as angels to lend a hand.Without all of you here this space would not have any meaning so i say Asante sana.

Within every being is the divine feminine and divide masculine.

It is not about fighting.It is about accepting with patience.Patience is a gift from God in this moment.I stand here today because all of you  here in the audience have in one way or the other made this event happen.
