Lin…A Warrior With…
In this season of my life, I can comfortably say that I am a much better, maturer, happier awakened version of myself. I am more open both at heart and mind and ready to do whatever it takes to get better. I feel Hopeful, Alive and SUPER grateful for the life I have been given. But with this awareness, has come responsibility.
I am a sum of my past experiences that now inform my future. Before finding myself back in class September last year, I was working at United Nations in New York with the Department of Political Affairs as well as UN Radio where I was reading the news in Kiswahili (super difficult but very cool). I was blessed to interact and grow with some amazing people both within the organization and outside of it. I made lifelong friends who have continued to advise me on what next steps to take.
Prior to that I had graduated from USIU- in Kenya with a BA in International Relations and was out in the field working on a sports and development program with children in a local primary school called Magare Primary in the Rift Valley Province. Working with these kids in the community and teaching them about the Millennium Development Goals in pictures and paintings was a great turning point for me.
I decided that I wanted to find a way to use Sports and Art (especially Music) to instill values of HOPE, of LOVE and PURPOSE. Hence why I am enrolled in the Sustainable Peace through Sport Program. 🙂
