Owning her status as a female farmer who has chosen hard work over babies, Kea most certainly turned heads. This woman is breaking patriarchal boundaries!

Kea breeds pigs and poultry and also grows crops. She is a strong woman who wants other ladies to know they are capable of anything.

Speaking to the incredible woman, Briefly News asked what advice she has for women wanting to enter the world of agriculture, knowing it is a male-dominated industry where women are still often looked down on. This is what she had to say:

“It’s not always easy, or rather, it hasn't been easy in the first place, but God made it possible, in this industry you have to forget about make up but sunscreen only because you will spend the whole day in the heat treating crops or taking care of small lambs and even try to feed them milk through the bottle. It’s a very interesting journey considering that you get to do what you love. With more funding from the government I think we can have young women in farming movement.”
