Roots

I was born in Uganda, raised at the United Nations, live in the Greater New York area and based on my lifelong exposure to various world cultures which has enabled me to develop an understanding that people are essentially all the same at their core– view the the whole plant as home.

Why AiD?

I chose to support AiD primarily given that its vision to help develop a self-reliant and poverty-free Africa aligns with my own personal beliefs and mission to do the same. I fundamentally believe that this vision can be accomplished through a well-developed strategy and coordinated efforts between Africans in the Diaspora, Africans on the continent and friends of Africa, as AiD is proposing. I also believe that Solome and the team she has assembled to move AiD forward, have the necessary skillsets, experience, access and most importantly, joint vision to move AiD forward.
