You Must Know Them

IM: What would you like to be remembered for?

RN: I would like to be remembered for my tenacity in reaching out to areas where most people are not comfortable to venture into.

I am mostly driven by passion, empathy and courage. When I wake up every day I want to know how the next person is feeling and how best I can be of assistance.

As a social and economic justice ambassador the community I live in should be able to remember me for being there when need arises. I give information freely.

I want to be remembered for starting an organization that works with incarcerated women and giving them another chance through economic empowerment programs. My children should remember me as a selfless parent and can give love, advice for free. The ability to share with those in need.

IM: What drives the work you do?

RN: I am driven by courage because I venture into untapped lanes and speak out against any injustices. My work can be so challenging and needs a good listener because some of the stories you hear are very disturbing and can affect or be judgmental but I have learnt that for every story there are three sides to it.

So I do not take only one side and this has been met with animosity from victims but in the end we all strive for peace, love and harmony. I get satisfaction when the offender and victim forgive each other.

You Must Know Them

IM: What are your parting words or advice?

RN: My parting words are “Remember we all potential prisoners”. In whatever situation we face, learn to share. We must make sure that we are able to control our emotions.

There are so many opportunities in life and you can do what suits you best and be among the stars. There is no age limit to rediscover yourself. Let no-one determine what you are capable of doing.
