"My motto as a Social Entrepreneur is to show others on how to use travel as a vehicle to empower communities in need."

Coming from the small Island of Mauritius and suffering my own share of hardships as a child, it was the chance to immigrate to Australia that allowed me to spread my wings and grow. In 2007 I was diagnosed with a brain haemorrhage. With only a 10% chance of survival, let alone regaining my memory, it was a miracle I made it through. This changed my appreciation and focus for life. I had been given a second chance and I knew I had to find a way to give others that second chance too!
