My core competence is in non-profit management, resource mobilization, capacity building, program development and implementation, women's rights activism, policy advocacy, women's health and human rights, facilitating events and humanitarian services, class action and public interest litigation for social and economic rights that affect vulnerable populations, such as the rights of women and girls, gender and climate justice.

By joining this network, I hope to meet legal practitioners around the globe, network with them and like-minded individuals, especially legal professionals who are working to empower people with the law, especially on women issues, to share experiences and learn from diverse perspectives on standard legal empowerment practice. I also hope to, access practical resources, and join international learning exchanges that can positively impact my work and competence.
