I am an experienced development professional with two Master's degrees in Development Studies and Development Management. I have strong quantitative and qualitative research skills, and I am adept at scientific writing. I have written two publications, one on the impact of social enterprises on Nairobi's labour market structure, and the second on the potential implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on relations between Kenya and China. I have also undertaken a gender study in Rwanda on the role of innovation hubs in the inclusion of women in Kigali's start-ups scene. In addition, I am experienced in fundraising and resource mobilization, and have raised over $18,000 for an NGO in Nairobi. I am also skilled in stakeholder outreach and partnership creation.
