I completed my Bachelor's Degree in International Studies and completed a thesis focusing on the Nexus between Kenya's Grand strategy and Human Rights. This research inspired an interest in learning more about conflict management. As such, I enrolled for a Master's Degree in International Conflict Management. I received a Sylff fellowship in 2015-2017 in the University of Nairobi while enrolled in the graduate program. My research focused on Refugee-Host country relationships with a particular emphasis on local integration as a solution in Kenya. With my education background I have worked as a refugee resettlement officer in Resettlement Support Centre- Africa that is managed by Church World Service. This has enabled me to take part in resettling refugees from Sub-Saharan Africa to the few willing resettlement countries.
