MY STORY

Today, I know my purpose and am allowed to live my dream. It was not always so…

After graduating with a Master in Psychology, I searched intensively and unsuccessfully for 8 years for my purpose by working at banks, insurance companies and industrial companies in various roles such as account manager, strategy consultant, recruiter and business analyst. Although I learned a lot during this journey, at the age of 31 I had to admit that the best job I ever had was cleaning cars at a car wash.

 

My purpose is to be the person for other people I would have always wanted for myself.

I know how frustrating it is not being able to find a meaningful career that is in line with one’s passion and personality. During my journey, I met many people who felt the same way as me. To liberate them from the situation in which I also found myself, I helped them understand their potential, to identify who they really are and how they can achieve their goal. That’s how I became the person for others I always wanted for myself: a coach and advisor who gives you direction to your purpose.

 

Today, I know that I can do it.

To finally prove myself that I have the skills to pave the way for people to their full potential, I did a post-graduate certificate in Social Innovation management at Amani Institute and went to the Mathare slum in Nairobi to give criminal ghetto-youth and former street kids without school degree a future in life.

With the aim to give criminal youth from slums a future in life, I went to Nairobi and founded the social enterprise Nai Nami. We build on the only thing those former street children have: Street Skills & Life Stories. Through Nai Nami 7 youths are now working as storyteller guides offering tours in Nairobi and earning a regular income. Due to the positive reviews we are #1 on TripAdvisor.
