Your profile as an entrepreneur
I am a 23 years old girl born in 1995, I lost my parents in 1999 due to immunocompromised disease and so at the age of 4 I was an orphan, I was raised by the hands of the society and I grew with the passion of saving back my society ensuring they have a good health and a sound environment. Being an orphan is the most painful story I could ever tell, my dreams is to save other childrens parents not to die like mine, I don't wish to see people suffering because they don't have the knowledge on natural medicine and they cant afford the hospital medicines thus they end up dying mercilessly. The greatest opportunities boosting my innovation is the suffering I see in my society, the increased rate of non transmittable diseases, dirty environment they are living, poverty and lack of knowledge, seeing them throwing away the best part of their medicine and feed the animal,seeing them consider the fruit peels as low waste is my great nightmare I would wish to clear with all of my energy and my strength,Throgh my health and science study I have greatly achieved the research in probiotics and I am now doing a research in fruit peels to ensure they are used by people in good quality and quantity, I look forward to call upon each and everyone of us to educate our people not to throw away fruit peels. I have two recognition certificates awarded to my team in the research week in 2018 held at the university of Dar es salaam and ndotohub certificate a non profit organisation for supporting women interpreneurship.
