Meet the People Extraordinaire

With its Meet the People Extraordinaire series, Sayfty takes further, its march to help inspire and bring out the modern, thinking individual in each of us. These are stories of inspirational figures who’ve broken barriers in their personal and professional lives, challenged stereotypes and fought against prejudice in the various forms it is prevalent in our social environment. The people we feature are not just gender-sensitive but also extremely resilient and passionate in their endeavor to support whatever cause they believe in- be it education, health or trafficking. Their tales of finding their voice are not just to instill a sense of awe in others but to show that accomplishments and achievements are possible despite the inevitable struggles life throws at us. We hope to empower all our readers so that they are able to see themselves potentially as these achievers who, by sharing their journey, are hoping to give back to the community by mentoring, educating, sharing knowledge and experience and in turn, building future leaders. Let the quest towards discovering oneself begin.
