The reason I selected Ms. Smith for this weeks WOW is because of the wonderful mentoring program she started in her native home of Swaziland. This was the first thing I found while research on young African women and mentoring. Her program popped up and I started searching for more. Providing opportunities for young Swazi girls to learn and be inspired by others, in order to improve their lives is just wonderful. That program has been an inspiration for me, to mirror something as such in Cameroon. Sometimes, the smallest things make the biggest impact. I have been privilege to actually meet and speak with this lovely lady. What an inspiration and I can't wait to one day invite her to speak at my mentoring program.
You can follow her on twitter for updates.
