A Brave trip to Monaco

In November I went to Monaco to take part in an exhibition for NGO, GenderHopes titled 'A Confident Girl'.

The exhibition raised money for the Akilah Institute, a college for women in East Africa that offers market-relevant education. This enables young women to achieve economic independence and obtain leadership roles in the workplace and in society.

They released a beautiful book featuring all the exhibited art. Below are a few extracts :
