Where I am today is because of God,  and good friends , that were there to talk to, share good idea s and work together during my challenges and stressful time. Woman should also use friendship not just for social networking only, also develop one and other, to share good knowledge , skills , support , and develop each other to achieve greater things in life.

I am using this opportunity to thank my children, my family’s all over the world my colleagues and my friends all over the World
