What drives Kaheli FEH TAH?
Three values: Faith. Generosity. Excellence drive me every second of my life.
Faith: I have too much faith in the almighty. At the point where most people break down, its my faith that fuels me. Excellence: I believe in anything i set my mind to do. Am a perfectionist and do not leave any job unfinished and when I am falling short my faith moves the mountains in front of me.
Generosity: I find satisfaction in giving esp when the moment comes for appreciation, when the person has this big smile on his/her face and says that thank u from the heart it fells so good. There is nothing i compare to this moments in my life when I am able to put a genuine smile on someone's face and see them walk away
Who is your role model?
My mother. My mother. My mother. Sometimes, I wonder what would have become without her. She is my role model in everything being a widow at the tender age of 31 with 6 children and without help from relatives since she was labeled the murderer of her husband, she single highhandedly educated all her six children to at least a Bachelor's Degree with God's help.
My mom taught me how to stand up tall on what i believe in and say no to what i think is wrong in front n not behind a person. With her entrepreneurial spirit she taught me how to be financially stable without the help of people and u know what financial freedom means.

You get to keep a stethoscope which is lacked by most African women whereby the men find us short of and intend use it as a medium for manipulation n control of our person.

Any plans for the AU?
If given the opportunity, I will like to change first the panel and category of people who form this union. This is simply Because the mindset of the panel denotes the outcome. Believe me Gender Representation will be equal such that if there are 50 representatives, then its 25 men and 25 women.
Any advice for the African Woman?
Women must not limit themselves because there are unlimited opportunities out there for the taking and naturally we are stronger than the men. Our instincts works 100 times faster than that of the men. We have compassion in our decisions and our reactions to situations are always more considerate giving the fact that we birth them therfore compassion is imperative
