Quizzed about her idea of an ideal world she would like to attain, Delly told MMI: “It would be one where the love of God and neighbor thrives, a world where children are worried about the different career and opportunity choices, rather than whether they will live through the next day and a world where parents can plan a retirement with their grandchildren, rather than worry each day if their child will survive.”Being a role model to the Cameroon girl child due to her challenges, hardships and triumphs, Delly encourages them to hold on and not lose sight of their goals.To be able to attain their dreams in future, she tells young girls “self-discovery and becoming the real you, is more important than anything else”.
