In 2014, her accomplishments as a farmer, community leader, and women’s advocate won her recognition as an Oxfam Female Food Hero. Since that time, she has deepened her local community involvement while sharing her expertise with influential audiences in Abuja, Addis Ababa, Washington D.C., and the World Food Prize’s Borlaug Dialogue in Des Moines. She returns to the U.S. in October 2017 to speak and contribute to discussions on the power of smallholder farmers.
