We are proud to present Winnie – the biochemist!

Women for Education is very excited to present the intelligent, passionate and goal-oriented Winnie who will pursue studies in biochemistry at Pwani University. She dreams of being a female role model in science and to inspire other young women to realize their dreams.

Winnie grew up in a small village in Mutomo and is the only child in her family. She knows the importance of having someone who believes in you and encourages you to dream big. She says “You have to tell girls, and make them believe, that that they are as capable as men. Prove it to those who say you are wrong by setting an example yourself.”  She was lucky to be encouraged by a teacher and in the future she wants to give that back to other girls. According to Winnie, encouragement and awareness are key factors in achieving gender equality.

“You have to tell girls, and make them believe, that that they are as capable as men. Prove it to those who say you are wrong by setting an example yourself.”

Winnie has most likely already managed to affect other young people as she has been working as a teacher since finishing secondary school. She really enjoyed making other students realize their potential and helping them in building stronger confidence.

In the future, Winnie wants to develop society through research in medicine and increased awareness of women’s rights. By choosing a profession where women are underrepresented, she wishes her decision can inspire other women to dare follow their dreams of professional life and not let misconceptions about women get in their way.

Winnie, we are very proud to support you and wish you the best of luck!
