I am originally from Congo and am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Arts at Southern New Hampshire University in Business Communication and has a diploma in Business Administration from Regis University. I have also completed Film Production Training and am a Co-founder and Chairperson of the Refugee Artists and Authors (RAA) initiative in Kakuma. I also worked as a Communication Coordinator at Jesuit World Learning Kakuma.
I am also currently working on a research project around children’s rights and customary laws with the University of Geneva in the camp. I am the CEO of a youth organization called Refugee Artists and Authors (RAA) which aims at the promotion of talented youth in Kakuma Refugee Camp. I believe in the power of the story and how people use their talent to tell their stories.
Women and young girls being at risk of violence and discrimination in refugee camp settings due to the lack of energy for both cooking and lighting is my motivation to advocate on their behalf. I support organizations that focus on providing energy access to those who are looking in fragile contexts with the object of increasing security, decreasing inequality, and boosting the economy for both displaced communities as well as the hosting country. 💡
