"No matter what we're going through, we still have people who need us and must help each other." - Aisha Bello.

Today, I'm thrilled to be joined by Aisha Bello, a Sexual and Gender-based Violence and Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Advocate, Author, M & E Specialist, and Social Entrepreneur. Aisha is also the Co-founder of GuardUp, a mobile application designed for the safety and protection of women, and the Executive Director of The Voice of Girl, Child, and Vulnerable People Foundation. 

Although Aisha was passionate about hard sciences and even got her Bachelor's Degree in Microbiology, her heart and her father's teachings made her reconsider, pivot, and become a social scientist to right the wrongs suffered by the vulnerable people in her community. 

Tune in and listen to the thirty-second episode of Avant-garde Entrepreneur. In this first part of my chat with Aisha, we learn about her journey and her decision to pivot from microbiologist to pursuing a Master's in Criminal Justice and a post-graduate diploma in Crime Management. We also discuss social entrepreneurship's advantages over non-profits, the challenges every social entrepreneur faces at least once in their path, and much more.
