Tell us a bit about yourself:

I am originally from Nairobi, Kenya where I ran a social enterprise (My Mind My Funk) that provided mental health information and support to people in Africa. I relocated to Lancaster in 2019 to restart my higher education journey and I am currently a Healthcare Management/Biblical Studies Major. I am also building an online journal that I would like to morph into a resource portal for international students to help them achieve their wellness goals, excel in their studies and enjoy their time in the cities and countries they travel to for school.
