Safia Hosein is a dreamer.

Growing up in East Trinidad, she dreamed of becoming a pilot and she dreamed of one day being able to travel the world.

After six years she moved to the Middle East where she unlocked yet another level of adventure.

In this instalment of Game Changers, Safia shares snippets of her journey and gives insight into some of the challenges she encountered along the way.

This is her story.
