As the founding president of DCLK, I’m incredibly proud of the journey we have had, and the team that made it happen! We have stuck together through many challenges similar to any start up, but stayed true to the cause that brought us all together. I am thrilled to be handing over the reigns to Emesha and her team, and I know the plans she has will only take DCLK to née heights. DCLK will also be part of my life, and my life will always be enriched by DCLK initiatives! I wish the entire team the very best for a fantastic year ahead
