I am Jennifer Dafwat a student of life and love. I will love it if things turned out the way we think they should but they hardly ever, so I concentrate on what I can influence and sleep on what I can’t.
When I’m not on stage compering events or performing poetry, I am in front of a camera. Speaking is my forte, ever learning, ever doing.
