On My Own Terms

Friends, it’s been a long while since I was last year! How are you?! I’ve missed this space. Last year, I set a goal to improve my writing. My plan was to write consistently so that I could practice and become perfect- or at least get close enough. But I had some technical difficulties. My

#Review: Super Supa Modo

I closed my weekend out in style by catching the 15:05 screening of Supa Modo at Prestige Cinema with my siblings after church. Supa Modo premiered in Kenya on March 27th at the Nairobi Film Festival and has been hailed as ‘beautiful, funny and fucking flawless’ (yes, by me). Supa Modo tells the story of

Two of My Favourite Quotes

I love a good quote! Both of my favourite quotes make reference to the sky- I love the metaphor of the sky which I associate with calm and the expanse and vastness of life. “Women hold up half the sky” – Thomas Sankara Apparently, this saying has its origins in China but I first heard

When Your Mind Says No

I’ve been wanting to scale up my video content for about a year and a half now. The desire was there but the ideas were not. So I just lingered over it, hoping that something would emerge with time. That time is now. I’m proud to have figured out a style and vision that’s given

The 25th Hour

I was really keen to improve on my reading habits last year. As a student, I rarely read leisurely because I associated it with academic pressure. I tried to get as far away as possible from books in my spare time. Time outside my studies would be spent engaging with people, exercising or watching shows.

Good Writing

Happy New Year, friends! I’m feeling very happy and relaxed. I had a really good December. And I left 2017 feeling light but grounded. You want to relieve yourself of the burdens that make the journey ahead heavy while still staying rooted in the things that give you clarity and a sense of direction. I’m

Before We Close

We’re wrapping up 2017 and what a year it’s been! My year has been guided by a deep desire to explore and expand. I’ve been excited to learn about areas not typically within my purview- Kenya’s problematic conservation principles, emergency healthcare courtesy of the film 18 Hours and lots of new music (which I’ve been

Na Bado

28.11.2016 | photo by Poon Celebrating one year since this glorious, gloomy day in Edinburgh- my MSc graduation. This was one of my best days in 2016. I had a really wonderful time after what had been a very frustrating week. I think I’ve said this before elsewhere but my time in Edinburgh was so

Working Through

When work is difficult, it’s natural to feel like you want to stop. Difficult work requires the best of you and it’s not always effortless. If you find yourself in a difficult space, struggling to push through and deliver what you need to do, it’s perfectly fine to pause. A pause doesn’t mean you’re quitting.
