Joy is a twenty-three year old living in the green city in the sun, Nairobi. She currently works at a research institute and has a keen interest in development and rural growth. She’s worked on strengthening rural institutions, capacity building, and enterprise development. Joy has been writing about Africa since she was ten years old and is excited to further chronicle its growth and capture its changing themes. In her spare time, she likes to produce and listen to music, mostly hip hop (the louder, the better). She also writes poetry, cooks a mean plate of Tandoori chicken, and practices yoga. She loves travel and fashion.
