“I am so honoured to have my work recognised in this way by the Global Peace Let’s Talk (GPLT).
“I also use this medium to thank all the advocates of peace across the African continent and the world by extension. Thank you for not relenting and being poised to make our world a better place for all. You all are the real heroes.
“My profound gratitude won’t be complete without appreciating the founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr Nikki de Pina for her great exemplary leadership and passion for peace advocacy and youth empowerment, especially among young people across the globe. Your selfless and motherly role is top-notch and a great inspiration to us. Thank you for all you do at GPLT and your laudable contributions towards peace and development.”
