She discovered her passion on human rights, good governance and democracy; after being exposed to interrogating the Constitution on the level at which it guarantees and or adheres to human rights, democracy and good governance values in different programs she was working on at that time. Her work and passion on these subjects saw her acquiring a Chevening scholarship, and currently holds a Master of Arts in Human Rights Theory and Practice from the University of Essex in Colchester, United Kingdom. 

She has formed part of Southern African Development Community (SADC) Observer Missions in Zimbabwe (2008 and 2013) elections and observed Swaziland’s 2003 election under the auspices of CANGO.
