"I am a social entrepreneur. I have been an entrepreneur since I was 21 years old in the United States. In 2001, I pioneered cosmetic surgery in Nigeria, which gave me access to underprivileged people that required reconstructive surgery but couldn’t afford to pay for it and weren’t receiving financial assistance to pay for their procedures."
"This disturbed me so greatly that, in 2003, I founded a non-profit organisation, Empower54, which was dedicated to providing desperately needed humanitarian assistance, such as medical missions and hunger eradication, along with a variety of educational, women/girl empowerment and refugee programs for underprivileged Africans."
"Some of our out-reach programs include donations of clothing and toys to underprivileged Africans both in remote communities and refugee camps. Desmond Tutu is our patron".
