To be good enough to enter a salsa competition in Colombia (and not make a fool of myself lol)
Hmmm this is a tough one I will give you 2. I would say either backpacking around Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar with my best friend after graduating from university. Highlights: the warmth of the people, safari in the Masai Mara, witnessing the migration of the Wildebeest, Kayaking in Zanzibar – the best beaches & coral I have ever experienced, and seeing life through a different lens. Or travelling around Mexico! The food, culture, salsa dancing, beaches, history, pyramids, and people – you will constantly be in awe. Fave places: Mexico City for food & culture, Puerto Escondido for the beaches, and Oaxaca for Hierve el Agua, & Mezcal cocktails.
Gender empowerment especially in Sub-Saharan Africa. Outside of my day job I am a Trustee and Project Manager for Youth Link Networks, a charity empowering young people in rural Uganda. I manage the Pretty Box Project which tackles period poverty and promotes access to education & employment for young girls.
