About Me: 

Am a human rights Activist, however, by virtue of my youthfulness I focus on youth issues. The fact that youths are not represented in both formulation of policy and its implementation process made me want to do more, right now we are talking of 75% of Kenyan population not being represented in making decisions that is not only going to affect them but the future generation as well. Having been born and bred in an orphanage in the second largest slums in Kenya (Mathare), I have come face to face with the enemy within; police brutality among many other atrocities, all these directed to the youths who have no idea of a creature called "Rights". My organization Network for Youth Advocacy is here to bright the gap of human Rights abuses, the youth unemployment, among many other issues. Right now we have 6 million unemployed young people, this basically means in the year 2030 we'll have 24 million unemployed young people roaming around the streets....You don't need to have knowledge in rocket science to know that it will not be business as usual! Youths have solution to their plovers, all they need is facilitation! Although we may not go back and make a brand new start, we can start now and make a brand new ending!

My Passions: 
Activism
My Challenges: 
Not being able to deal with things beyond me
My Vision for the Future: 
To see young people in leadership position, being able to relate or rather communicate in a language any other youth can understand
My Areas of Expertise: 
Activism
My Languages: 
English, Swahili
