I studied at Education in Economics and French and while in university, began to engage in entrepreneurship. I progressed into an economist career at the World Bank. However, I was immediately became restless about the unsustainable direction of development work in Africa and decided to leave in 2012 and start Wazawazi, a luxury lifestyle leather goods brand in Nairobi, Kenya.
The change in Africa will be driven by progressive Africans on the ground with a passion for the development of the African continent - Africans crazy enough to think that they can change things. I am one of those Africans.
My mission is to tell the story of modern day Africa. Our ethically and sustainably produced design-driven products are expression of my conviction as a cultural ambassador. My commitment to inclusion and diversity is part of the brand's ethos of being a socially responsible modern global African lifestyle company.
I am on a mission; to mobilize existing creative communities to power scalable and sustainable business for the society we exist in.
It is my duty. What are you doing about Africa today?
