My Story

My story is of an average child of an immigrant middle-class family. Growing up in Tanzania and Kenya, I was raised with strong values of service, community and impact. But it was only when I was 15, after I had a "near-death" experience as a result of dengue fever that I decided to live my life more intentionally. I went on this search for purpose that led me to launch my very own non profit For The Menstruator in 2017. I spent the next 5 years building my organisation impacting over 20,000 in 10 countries around the world. This led to opportunities for me to serve in a range of other spaces including Health, Education, Climate and Poverty extending my impact through the organisations I served at to over 500,000 people. For my altruistic efforts, I have been awarded some of the most prestigious accolades including the Diana Award, Global Teen Leader and Future25U25. My story has been shared on some of the biggest platform include TED, BBC, Yahoo News, DW News and more!

Now 21, I have found new purpose - empowering other young people like myself to find and fulfil their passions and purpose as we create not only Leaders of tomorrow but Leaders of Today.


I am always looking to meet new people and working on new opportunities. Let's connect!
