Her passion to fundraise developed after successfully securing more than a quarter million dollars in scholarships to pay fully for her undergraduate and dual master’s degrees. Aspiring diplomat turned businesswoman, she co-founded the Virtual Global Consultant (VGC) Group in 2016, a project management and digital marketing agency that services people, businesses and organizations aimed to create revenue online.

Through her company, W.E.

She has successfully built and managed digital systems and trained her employees in the areas of administration, design, development, editorial and more in less than a year.
Ultimately, she envisions the VGC Group as a leader in championing a global consciousness, promoting an understanding that everything businesses and brands do has a global impact – from the executive level to civilians on the ground.
In her spare time, she continues to research and write thought-provoking articles on bridging global communication, and the impacts of digital technologies and systems on homegrown businesses and the labor force in countries around the world.
