I am a journalist from Kenya and I formerly served as a Swahili teacher. A part from reporting in Swahili, I also do English-Swahili translations and editing with several local and international organizations. I was born and raised in Kenya's Coastal town of Mombasa, where nearly every aspect of life including food, clothing and lifestyle is governed by Swahili culture. My love for Swahili earned me my first job as a Swahili journalist with BBC’s Swahili Service in Kenya. There is more to the Swahili language than 'Hakuna Matata' (no worries). I love teaching Swahili because It is the easiest African language for foreign speakers to learn. Besides speaking, Swahili is also easier to read as thewords are pronounced the same way they are written. As a journalist, I enjoy reporting because I pass my message easily and in very romantic words that attract my audience. May this year, Swahili made history as first African language recognized by Twitter, and I would really like to spread the beauty of this language in this position. Some of the organizations that I have offered my English-Swahili translations and editing services United Nations(UN), BBC, World Food Programme (WFP) and United Nations International Childrens Emergency Fund.
