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.

What drew you to The Candy  Factory?

Looking for the start-up ecosystem in Lancaster as well as a place to build community as I figure my next steps professionally.
