She mobilized girls to stand up against harmful traditional practices, influenced community leaders and managed to get in the Constitution the legal marriage age changed from 15 to 18 years for the whole country. She is dedicated to empowering young girls, promoting, defending and advocating for their rights. Memory believes girls’ education and empowerment is the best way to end poverty traps in Africa and elsewhere.
