  • How and when did you get involved with the GC programme?

    I did GC2 in 2012 when I was a student. From there, I was interested in the work they are doing and decided to be more involved with student development programmes on campus. I then started working for GC in November 2015.

  • What influenced your decision to join the GC staff?

    It is the social justice work that they do. This speaks directly to my passion and I loved the fact that I could combine my own community work with the GC work.

  • What do you find most exciting about being part of the GC team?

    It is team work and knowing that you can always have people to think with on your projects. I also love the fact that GC gives you many options, roles are never really fixed. There is space to be creative and take leadership in arears of your own interest.

  • What is the one thing you think people should know about you?

    I am a mother to a beautiful girl, her name is Omiyo and it is the best thing that has happened in my entire life :)
