I was born and raised on a tea farm in Meru, Kenya, a one-street town in Kenya’s ‘tea country.’ I originally came to the United Stated to attend graduate school at Columbia University, in New York City. After completing graduate school, I realized that without my friends and family back home I wouldn’t be where I am today.
