She is interested in Education, with a focus on women empowerment. Three years ago she raised funds through GoFundMe to purchase school supplies that were sent to a school in Lome, Togo. She has sent three containers of school supplies to Togo so far. In addition she has also sent money to purchase other supplies that she could not obtain in the USA.
