"I am where I am and the leader that I am because I learned from the best, she is real and she is raw. Looking back, I honestly am thankful that our paths crossed as she helped build my character and kingdom business principles. To sum it up, Modesta has a calling of grooming leaders and she is GREAT AT IT!"

Charles Porter

Founder, Life Cartography

"My first encounter with Modesta in a professional context was ironically by reputation. Her leadership and quick grasp of complex ideas in the cultural context in which we were working was exceptional. My own life has been enriched by someone who has taken seriously the idea of investing in others around her."

Khalila Mbowe
Founder & MD, Unleashed Africa

"She saw the greatness in me while I was still fumbling in confusion and mediocrity. Modesta gives it to you raw. She is not one to beat around the bush when it comes to inspiring people to grow in their capacity as leaders. She has been a mentor, a counselor, and a coach like no other."
