I was born in Kenya as a child. As a child, I listened to stories of my ancestors of how the trees saved my people and our land. I listened to the trees and their spirit spoke back to me. I taught women all over Africa the power of how to plant trees, how to take back their lives, how to feed their families and how to restore the natural beauty of Africa with their own strong hands. So my children, I say to you; use your mind, use your strong beautiful hands and the spirit in your heart to build something for yourself and for your community that would be everlasting.
