Catherine moved to Australia from the Gambia in West Africa to study building and construction. She was the only female in a class of sixty and suffered from the racist and sexist comments and behaviour of the others in her class. But she hung in there and God has rewarded her.
Now she works as a project controller, and she also writes, dances, and is an actor. Catherine is full of life, and full of the good things God has done for her and it was a joy to interview her. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the interview too.
Catherine’s blog is: A Lady for my King (website and magazine)https://aladyformyking.com/
She is writing a book called Beyond the Shadows that will be launched in October.
The award she won was the African Australian Women in Leadership Award. A national award organised by Africa Media Australia.
