Semerian’s vision is to be an agent of change in her community by helping to improve the lives of girls and women through education. While growing up, she discovered that lack of education leads to lack of empowerment and in turn poverty within her community.

Having had educated parents, Semerian grew up knowing that it is not only men who should have a voice in the household, a woman should also have voice too especially in matters regarding her children lives. 

It is in this regard she is now advocating for women to have education, to be included in decisions regarding their families and to be empowered in society. Women do not have to find their voice once widowed.
