I was introduced to Africa at school when I got the chance to build classrooms in rural Kenya on a charity trip. This trip ignited not only my passion for travel but also my love for Africa, which then opened the door to becoming cabin crew for a well-known British airline. During this time, I travelled to over 50 countries, but Africa was never far from my thoughts. Since then, I have visited South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Kenya and Victoria Falls but always look forward to exploring elsewhere.
