Mentors

Rachel Gichinga is a 25-year old ‘sometime’ blogger. She’s admitted that she does not blog as often as she would like to. However, she has written a few posts about the post-election violence and on Kenyan politics. Some of these posts got picked up by a US television channel, NBC Channel One. She has her blogs posted on her Facebook page.

Rachel feels that the idea that one can participate in transformative thinking regardless of their position and status in life both humbles and empowers the blogger; and she would absolutely love to be a part of helping other young women find and use their voices in this simple yet powerful manner.
