I am a Kenyan who strongly believes in Africa in all her beauty, diversity, capabilities, resources and peoples. I advocate for development in Africa that centers youth and women. I work in communications and advocacy with the Network of African Youths for Development (NAYD). At NAYD, I highlight young community development actors, host topical discussions with youth on social media and write on development-related issues. I have a BA in Sociology and English Linguistics, an MA in Sociology and I am currently doing a PhD researching development and gender in Africa. I also enjoy reading and writing fiction.
A society that upholds social justice, where systems and institutions work and the people have the opportunity to exercise agency.
Looking to partner with people well versed in grant-making and fundraising.
I am pretty good at social media management, editing, writing, blogging, community development, youth work, action research.
