Ladies in Helmets: Interview with Founder & IWD #BalanceForBetter Karura Picnic

This past weekend, I had the privilege of leading a discussion on Balance for Better at the Workplace to celebrate the International Women’s Day that was on 9th March 2019.

Ladies in Helmets, a STEM oriented organization whose main aim is to create a platform for young women in the male dominated fields to network and grow together, ran by the 3 ladies above, Winnie, Sue and Stella, organized a picnic for both men and women at Karura on the Saturday, 10th March 2019.

Why I Will Not Work for Free as a Creative Freelancer

And neither should you.

Listen up.

For the #BalanceForBetter International Women’s Day, I would like to share an important business revelation I had with all the creative and freelancers out there who are running their business and wondering why they feel cheated when they get remunerated or how to charge for their services.

Molo II -January 2018, February 2018. A town stuck in poverty 50+ years since independence & crippled by post election clashes in recent years: 1992, 1998 & 2007/2008. It’s almost as if the town is stuck in a time capsule of its own nature.

what brings two people together? – the need to be seen, to be appreciated, to be accepted with all of one’s humanness. 

the act of allowing others into our lives is an act of vulnerability – it allows the other to see our attempt at making our individual aloneness bearable, our efforts at escaping loneliness, our need for community. 

and most times, this coming together requires “work” – communication, honesty, dependence, and sometimes, the work does not bear fruit

these themes of what we have come to call love are what these poems attempt to address in a very simple, straightforward way
