What does your company do?

Our company serves as an education partner for community schools. We have merged the homeschooling approach and the aftercare approach to open a broader reach for learning needs. We teach mindfulness strategies to learners, provide quality library resources at community level, expose learners to environmental education and hosts innovation festivals in which learners re-imagine solutions to the education crisis from their perspectives.

What is your biggest success? Early Birds Lifestyle is an awardee of the Reconciliation Award 2019: The Art of Reconciliation. On the 19th of November 2019, the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation and the A4 Arts Foundation co-hosted the 19th annual Reconciliation Award ceremony under the theme – The Art of Reconciliation. The ceremony recognized, showcased and celebrated arts and people who pursue justice and reconciliation through imagination and creativity at a community and local level. The Institute, and the A4 Foundation, created a space that celebrated art and artists in the visual arts, music, and spoken word. The space was interactive with many opportunities to engage and reflect on our histories, identities, and the agency to initiate change.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

Being marginalized. Being a woman. Being the first member of my family to hold a university degree. Being a daughter of a domestic worker. Having gained access to world class education and very little network support has meant It would take longer to build one aspect of my business at a time. it is a frustrating process building without capital resources.
