IAM inBORN Kenyan

Who Am I?

Do you call yourself a Kenyan? Which category do you belong?

1. By Birth
2. By Tribe
3. By Name
4. By Marital status
5. By Dual citizenship

WHAT ELSE?  No matter what you believe in let all embrace diversity inside Out. This is called InBorn.

IAM InBorn

#IAM inBORN Kenyan

As designers we need to claim our space by making great expression that will build the Kenya we want. This design is inspired by the philosophy of inside out values, whereby preaching and  doing what we believe in a prosperous nation devoid of tribalism, impunity, discrimination just  to mention but a few. It is a celebration of our diversity, love, unity and peaceful coexistence in building a great Kenya for all built on the firm foundation of generations that foster greater values that will live beyond the test of time.

“It might be easy to be a a citizen of any nation but being patriotic requires more than changing your name" Wilson Masaka founder, Wilsen Initiative (Wi)

Using my work, skills, talent and time I have been working on positive change projects for example T-shirt design and sports venture among others. Today I’m proud to official launch the IAM inBorn Campaign.

+throughMylens - Photography Journey

As a Visual Communication Designer, I major in Copy writing, Photography, Web, Print and Video, in general it’s about content creation. I’m a strong advocate of authentic content production and my inspiration comes from many sources. In my photography journey dubbed +throughMyLens I seek to document the positive side of life especially challenging the usual narrative of Africa being a continent of poverty, diseases, crime etc. whereby encouraging the next generation of Africans to proactively build a sustainable Africa by celebrating the good side and most of all telling our stories and not leaving it to predetermined scripts.

 I want to show the other side part of the coin in the story of Africa which wouldn’t make it to the front page of any newspaper because it isn’t termed as news as per their script. I’m a self taught person and I started photography back in 2008 and currently still learning how best to sharpen my skills and later monetizing the skills for quality and affordable prices by training others.
