My name is Bev Hooper and I am thrilled to be a part of Tembea Na Mimi 2017. I am 49 years old and reside with my husband and two sons in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. My day job is running my consulting company, Hooper Access and Privacy Consulting Ltd. that specializes in information management, privacy and information access. I have always enjoyed travel and I’m pleased to add Africa soon to my list of places around the world that I have visited. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to experience some of the most pristine geography and wildlife in the world, as well as the desire to accomplish the physical challenges of the walk, however, my primary reason is centered around the people of Lalmba and gaining an understanding of the challenges that they face daily and the resources required to assist them.
