No One Belongs Here More Than You
This sentiment is more than a Sseko motto, but a badge of honor for each of 68 Fellows who attended Sseko Summit 2018. For some Sseko Fellows flying to Portland, Oregon was their first time meeting another Sseko Fellow in person. Countless emails and phone calls transformed into hugs and celebration as women front across the country began to learn and share her Sseko Story.
Sseko Designs started in Uganda with four women under a mango tree making leather sandals with interchangeable straps. Mary, Mercy, Rebecca and myself. We were impossibly naive and hopeful about the future and the impact that a single girl and pair of sandals could make in her community and our world.

Recently, I have been reflecting back to June 2017. This was one of the hardest months of my life. After a bout of sickness, my youngest son Matteo, was diagnosed with epilepsy caused by fevers and overheating. News no parent ever wants to hear. I was fearful of not only his safety but what my life would now look like because of this change.

Travel gives life to my soul and brings joy to my world. I feel free on the road. I breathe more easily exploring. I feel alive meeting new people in new places.
My dad told me to go for gold and never take no for an answer.
Childhood lessons seem so simple, yet adulthood manages to insert complications and obstacles. One of mine was postpartum depression.

The mission of Sseko and what it’s doing across the globe for women, was what first drew me to the company. I volunteer for non-profits and am on the board of an anti-sex-trafficking coalition in my community, so everything Sseko is about gets me so excited!
I had dabbled in direct sales in the past, so the “selling” side was familiar to me. Since I loved Sseko’s mission already, I was excited to be part of this amazing company once I heard they had opened up the opportunity to be a direct seller of beautiful Sseko products.
What I didn’t expect was the sisterhood that I’ve found.
