Do it Afraid

At times I wake up and I'm afraid. My mind races and I am not sure about this path I have chosen for myself. At times I self - doubt. What was I thinking? I have only done one delivery since I started. The month is a wrap. What am I doing? These are the…

I love my country… just not enough

I am Kenyan and proud to be one. I love my country to bits, or so I tell myself. It sounds like the right and patriotic thing to say, yes? You cannot not love your country, or can you? Kenya is beautiful, beautiful people, beautiful places. We are a unique people. 43 different tribes and…

Life Happens… I guess

It's 1:00 a.m. and I am still awake. This rarely happens. I have a standard bed time that is between 9-10pm. Anyways, life happens I guess. I was to write this earlier but then again, life happens. Lol. Heading to work, I heard on the radio about the famine that is being experienced in certain…

September

I knew this year was going to be a tricky one early on. When I say this year, I don't mean 2016 but 29. It is my last year as a 20 year old and at 30, I feel like the stakes go higher. Maybe I've just set the stakes high for myself. There's things…

Suswa Girls

Suswa Girls finally happened this past Sunday and it was loads of fun. It had taken a minute for calendars to make sense but we finally made it. Now, Moulding Beauty is my mentoring project for teens, both boys and girls. And it has been eating at me for a while and so when my…
