I am a young woman in leadership. Currently serving as a county minister in the county government of Busia, Kenya. I head the docket of Public Service, ICT and Intergovernmental Relations. I am proud to hold this position at the age of 31 years. Prior to this I was a regional project manger of East and Southern Africa, in an organization called world renew. I have a strong passion for advocating for women's rights and empowerment. As a human rights and social justice advocate, I strongly believe that progression of any society is anchored on the level of freedom respect and awareness on women's rights. I have worked on issues of women's rights for the last eight years, from helping women to acquire land to empowering them on gender based violence and negative social issues that hinder women from realizing their full potential. Besides this I run a mentorship program for women of various ages to help them define a course and to equip them with basic skills and confidence to pursue them. I am also a topical writer.
