I am a 21-year-old woman currently in the last semester of my third year of study. I am pursuing a degree in Journalism and Media Studies.

As long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a journalist though the African society does not really consider that a career since 'it only involves telling stories'. To me, there is more to it than that, the thing that fascinates me is the power my words have and the ability to change that world with them.

I seem to think I am not the conventional writer maybe in a way I could compare my outlook similar to Michael Moore's. I thrive on truth and do not believe in sugar coating anything and that is what we need more of in this world.

However, I am also quite fond of entertainment and creative journalism, as well as documentary production.

ETHNIC CLEANSING IN KENYA - HELP US PLEASE (Editor's note: This article is published exactly as submitted to the SOP.)

Woman vs Flat Tire - Assult in Kenya is not taken seriously. We don"t realize, as a society, that the very same man who slaps a woman is the very same man who will set her ablaze.

sweet nectar - love really is blind and distructive; sweet and bitter-- the journey of the poet persistently poses possibilites.

Again - Journey of a foolish heart, yes; but, it is said: that which does not kill us makes us strong. Always said best by the poet.

The Dying Songs of the Motherland - Good African music and culture have been forgotten according to one soul who is listening and calling your heart to remembrance.
