I am an Afro-German woman currently living in Berlin. I was born in Berlin. Yet, my brother, father and I moved to Mombasa following the death of my mother.
I have been writing mainly poetry and short stories since the age of 9, it was a way of coping with the loss and trauma. Writing came to me as a way to communicate.
I, however, went to a school in Mombasa that did not encourage creative writing at secondary level. Therefore, when it was time for me to go to university back in Berlin, my subject choices were very limited. I graduated this year with a degree in economics. Writing has always been with me though, and I can't seem to let it go. I currently trying to get my work out there. I have not been published anywhere but I hope that someday my writing will get recognized.
