I was born in the southern part of Eswatini in a small village called Lavumisa. My father was absent for most of my childhood, since my parents got me when they were still in school. My mother struggled to provide for me hence she left me under the care of my grandmother at a tender age. So I personally understand the challenges many children face within households who are facing poverty. Fortunately, I received love and guidance of a caring and praying grandmother which provided me a solid Christian foundation. This led me to a personal commitment to Christ in my teens, after realizing the need for God and His perfect love for me. God began to work in my life in powerful ways and I experienced reconciliation with my father and family. While pursuing my university studies, God led me into the ministry of discipling young people at Adventures in Missions (AIM) and Children HopeChest, which brought me much fulfillment. While serving with AIM/HopeChest, I was privileged to be one of the first two individuals to attend and complete the Swazi Leadership Academy (SLA) and I was trusted to lead the SLA Program within AIM/HopeChest. It was then that my passion to empower future leaders for Eswatini and beyond, especially those from underprivileged backgrounds, was ignited. I believe in eradicating ‘victim mentality’ and unleashing potential of the Swazi child – the next generation of leaders, to be change agents, cycle breakers and trailblazers who will create solutions for their internal and external problems.
