Why I do what I Do

A nurse, midwife and lawyer, I was also an abused woman. Why did I not leave the relationship? I stil l don't know. I now spend my time encouraging others to tell, record, shout out your own story.

Our stories need to be recorded, so that together they will change the world for our children!

Born in South Africa in 1944, Monica prefers to be called Ouma Monica  (Afrikaans for Grandmother). Afrikaans is her mother tongue. English is her first language.

Monica invites institutions and organisations to be in touch if they would like that she be an added resource to them to aid them in their work.
