If there is anything Angel likes, it is to write the story of her life while holding the pen.
She was recently elected to serve as chairperson in the first-ever COMESA Youth Advisory Panel, alongside her other feather as the Secretary for Gender and International Relations in the All-Africa Students Union headquartered in Accra, Ghana.
In a country where you so often hear, ‘you are the leaders of tomorrow’, how does one get to where she is? “I may not call where I am a destination, but a journey. For any girl out there, I would recommend getting educated first.”
Her next frontier is to focus on advocacy, governance, and leadership. “It’s time for Kenya to start thinking about a female president. This will happen in my current generation. That is something I will want to live to see and fight for.”
"I may not call where I am a destination, but a journey. For any girl out there, I would recommend getting educated first."
Angel has a Political Science and Sociology degree and is pursuing a Master’s in Research and Public Policy. At 27, does she feel the weight of her achievements? “When I was younger it was worse. I got elected first to the University of Nairobi as Academic Affairs Secretary and later the vice chair. The world is ever-changing and there are always younger people doing more, so I am more inspired.”
