It has obviously really helped when An Taoiseach [Ireland’s Head of Government/Prime Minister], Mr. Enda Kenny endorsed my work…

…and when Aroyga World showcased my work at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York where attendees such as the United Nations, World Health Organisation and current and past Presidents of the USA, Mr Barack Obama and Mr Bill Clinton were in attendance!
