Her songs come from deep within her heart and soul and are breathtakingly special.” Her poetry, plays and songs reflect the path of a committed Theatre for Development practitioner and she credits Bricks Community Project for helping her open her eyes to contribute to the empowerment of society’s disadvantaged. She’s given young Namibian poets a chance to publish their work, co-edited poetry books ("In Search of Questions" BAB 2005 - dedicated to Carl Schlettwein (1925-2005) ) and manuscripts, she wrote a column, which focussed on the art of writing poetry for the New Era Newspaper in Namibia, she was a pioneer for the first ever music awards that has made many Namibian artists a household name.
