Wanjiru Mungai

About Me: 

What do I love best about me? When I laugh. I laugh deep, with my soul, with all that I am. Even my bones feel it. I love people, and think that every person, every face, every smile, each eye has a story to tell. Sitting in cafes, in the bus stop, I wonder to myself what story the other would tell, if he could, and sometimes, may be more often than others think ok, I probe. I ask. And there are jewels out there.

That being so, I am not strong. I am weak, I cry, I struggle. I get frustrated. Sometimes I go to bed and I think I will never wake up. But then I remember - those before me, their backs broken as they sought to make my path easier. I bend down and grab my shoe strings, and with all my might I hoist myself up, ready to face another day. And when I am - I laugh, and my bones can feel it. Then I can go on...

My Passions: 
People and their stories. Books (I love Shantaram, and oh! The Book of Negroes). Children. Music
My Challenges: 
I have to learn patience.
My Vision for the Future: 
Where Generosity is rediscovered.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Administration, Organisation. Listening, (Writing?)
My Languages: 
Other, English, Swahili, Kimeru, Kikuyu (a little french, a little arabic)
