Humanitarian, Writer, and Communicator in Nairobi, Kenya
Ang’asa is a communicator and a bundle of energy. Luckily, my work allows me to constantly be both. I am a creative: a photographer, writer and poet. I got my first publishing - 2 poems - in the 2013 Power of Words: An Anthology of Poems by KePoLo (Kenya Poets Lounge) Books and looking forward working with more projects especially with other African writers.
As a young girl I recounted movies and TV shows, tales from books I had read and any happenings I could to my friends and anyone that would listen. Now I am constantly finding ways to tell stories and create content for newsletters, websites and social media channels. I love developing strategic approaches around communication and finding the best ways to paint a picture.
I studied Human Resource Management but my growing interest in writing, technology and photography drew me towards the field of communication. I am now pursing an MBA in Strategic Management and a Diploma in Digital Marketing.
While working as a Communications Officer at Agrics Kenya (www.agrics.org), an agri focused organisation working with communities in Western Kenya and Northern Tanzania, my work revolved around management of social media platforms, monitoringimpactof media projects, developing and driving on andofflinecommunications strategies, creating and managing content, providing support to field teams and managing brand growth.
I have now moved to the refugee resettlement front. I travel across sub-saharan Africa supporting refugee processing. My work provides access to durable solutions to those most in need.
