Juror Profile

Rachel Kachaje
I support the Her Abilities Award 100% plus 1 because I believe that persons with disabilities, particularly women with disabilities, can best influence their destiny, and they need to be visible and their abilities to be showcased without any discrimination. As a woman with disability I am motivated that through Her Abilities Award, society at large will be inspired by those that have excelled in their sectors despite all odds.
