Why I love KENYA ?
Kenya is the home to the famous African Safari and one of the favorite tourist destinations in Africa, the breathtaking views of Rift Valley, the multiple cultures and the warmth of the people. Kenya has earned its position among the League of Nations as an attractive destination for investment and trade. When it comes to the food, I grew up with Kenyan food. My parents always made sure we stayed true to our culture.
Charity of Choice: Autism Society of Kenya www.autismkenya.org
This is personal to me, Growing up with my brother who is Autistic , my family experienced the challenges and My brother's journey taught me that hope comes a long way. We were blessed enough to be able to know everything we needed to know about Autism spectrum disorder at an early stage, which I feel most people in Kenya do not get the chance because they barely know about it, or their financial status does not cater for the therapy and the kind of diet an Autistic child needs. My mission is to raise more awareness about children with autism spectrum disorders in Kenya. Founded in 2003, Autism Society of Kenya has been involved in raising awareness and educating the community about the management of Autism. I'm happy i can finally speak up for My big brother and I, and also every other Autistic child.
Why I joined the pageant?
This is a platform for me to be able to raise awareness about Autism, what it really is, together with the organization Autism Society of Kenya we will raise the awareness and hopefully the funds raised will help some of the families back home.
