In many ways, this blogs sums me up – it is a repository for some of my thoughts, ideas and experiences. If you have any comments, criticisms or questions. Feel free to reach out at: firstname.lastname@example.org
In brief, I was born in Canada and grew up there and in the UK. Studied Economics at Cambridge, graudated in 2017, spent the summer cycling across Europe and shortly thereafter moved to Kenya with a UK funded NGO called FSD Africa. In 2018, I joined the Kenyan office of a social-impact investment firm, Triple Jump, with a focus on investing in microfinance institutions. From January 2021, I will be working for a start-up from Kenya, founded by two Cambridge professors, on a mission to increase the space for ‘end-beneficiaries’ voices, feedback and power in the design, implementation and evaluation of donor programs in low-income countries.
