"Life is a song - learn, sing and dance!"
I am a creative and passionate writer whose objective is empowering children and young people to discover the treasure that is within them. I have worked as a TV producer without academic or journalism training because I believe life is a song that every one of us needs to learn, sing and dance to as we pursue a purposeful life.
As a TV producer, my aim was to inspire children to discover their purpose and embrace life fully. Two years ago, I quit my job to start Lifesong Kenya which mentors young people juvenile prison, rehab and informal schools
