Since 2013 she has been a member of AIESEC Namibia a student run organisation that aims to encourage young Namibian youth to become informed, engaging, and active, responsible and inspired. She further believes that civic responsibility provides a platform for citizens to pertain certain democratic values giving them a means to be responsible citizens and active participators in the community with the aim of building an empowered community.

Her ultimate vision is to see an Africa where every child and adult has access to ICT infrastructures that will contribute substantially towards the development and prosperity of citizens. Working with informal communities and underdeveloped communities on the African continent and being a representative role model to many young African youths is one of her aspirations.
