Nadine Zehe Roberts: Woman of the Week (101)

Who is Nadine Zehe Roberts?

Before her 17th birthday, Nadine had a clear vision of what her adult life as a woman would be: to be self-employed running her own successful business; to be in a position to be a change agent in her community – changing lives and providing opportunities for younger people. She also envisioned herself travelling all over the world with her husband, with adequate arrangements in place for their children. A dream common to most girls of that age!
Then she joined BPW in 2009. She became inspired by the women she met in the organization. The more she discovered BPW and its radiation, the surer she became that she had found the right place to develop her dream. She loves to participate in any BPW activity where her qualification could help and be further developed.
