About Me   About Me
I am an Ambassador for the World Association of Girl Guides and Girls Scouts (WAGGGS) on the Post2015 Development Agenda. I have also served as the Regional Focal Point for Global Youth Coalition on HIV/AIDS (GYCA) in Eastern Africa. As a youth leader, I was fully engaged in the International Year of Youth 2010 – 2011, where I represented my country as an official youth delegate in the Horn of Africa Youth Forum in Djibouti 2010, the World Youth Conference in Mexico 2010, the Mali Youth Summit in 2011 as well as the United Nations High Level Meeting of Youth in 2011. I worked on various issues that affect girls and women in Africa. This range from conflict transformation and non-violence practises, HIV/AIDS prevention, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, involvement of women and youth in decision making platforms as well as being a speaker in the– XVIII International AIDS Conference . Others platforms that I have used to champion the needs of women and girls in Africa include; the Eastern and Southern Africa Civil Society Organizations Consultation on Universal Access on HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, care and support with UNAIDS, the 16th ICASA Consultative Community Programme design, the Eastern and South Africa Youth Think Tank Meeting on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, the International Youth Violence Prevention Conference, courtesy of the Centre for Justice and Crime Prevention (CJCP) and the 3rd Pan-African Youth Leadership Summit, where I spoke on the importance of youth involvement in conflict resolution and transformation using and non-violent means and how young people in Africa can contribute to zero HIV/AIDS infections, zero stigma and discrimination and zero hiv/aids related deaths in Africa . I have contributed to and been featured in global publications that include the UNAIDS CrowdOutAIDS strategy document, UNESCO’s be the Change Generation, Reproductive Health Matters and will be contributing to the Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS Research Alliance’s (SAHARA) What works in scaling up proven HIV prevention interventions publication that will be released in January 2015.

In Kenya, I am the focal point for a Campaign that focuses on ending violence against girls and young women in the Kenya Girl Guides Association and a member of the Africa UNiTE to End Violence, Kenyan Chapter. I have had the opportunity to attend national events such as the 3rd Conference on Peer Education, Sexuality and HIV/AIDS, Kenya AIDS National Strategic Plan (KNASP III) launch, and the HIV Free Generation Campaign launch in Nairobi. Presently, I am a coordinating the 6th Social Aspects of HIV/AIDS Research Alliance (SAHARA) conference youth programme. I will also be working closely with the Pan-African Youth Leadership team to ensure the 4th Pan-African Youth Leadership conference consults on eradicating unemployment while bringing more economic empowerment and creating more job opportunities for women and youth in Africa.
