Introducing myself and my journal: Women Soaring Higher Amidst Tribulations
I am a female Kenyan citizen who holds an upper division second class honours degree in Social Sciences. I developed passion for writing at a tender age. I would witness a number of things affecting women and children in the society and wondered how I could get out this information for necessary plan of action. I needed some channel to air it to the concerned parties.
I joined the media industry (Kenya News Agency) as a news reporter in the mid 2006 as I was awaiting my graduation. Immediately after graduation I joined editorial desk of the mainstream media (Times News Services - Publisher of both Kenya and Sunday Times newspapers) where I worked as a Sub-Editor and also wrote several commentaries on women, governance, education and human rights. I am passionate about issues that are pertinent to Africa. I am keen on women affairs, governance and democracy ,human rights and development.
I am an active member of Association of Media Women in Kenya (AMWIK), Media Advocates for Children and Kenya Journalist Association (KEJA).
Presently I am an Editor/Writer of The African Executive Magazine based in Nairobi.
I believe as a journalist I can reposition Africa through setting women's agenda for positive action. I am also an advocate for the women,children and a poet.
