Westlands, Kenya

My life started when I was 10 years old. I was diagnosed with rheumatic heart disease. I was on medication until I was 21 years. I have received more than 400 injections, more than a family combine would receive in their whole lifetime. I am writing this profile today because my heart is still beating, its keeping the blood circulating. I have picked up some hobbies on my way here, Golfing, Fishing Cycling and Reading. I also love to travel, see places and meet great people.

My journey with Joomla started 2010, when a friend of mine introduced me to tech, the same year we did a very first #JoomlaDayKenya and it was a big flop. We did not have the connections with the Joomla Community and many people in Nairobi did not understand what Joomla was despite running website on it. This year, we will be doing the fourth edition of Joomla Day Kenya around October, I have also gotten in-touch with other Joomlars around the world and I will be heading to Joomla Day Port Elizabeth in South Africa, just to network more. Our program in Nairobi has involved universities and high school, we have been holding events and camps for Joomla. Though this, we have encouraged students to start forums that they use to help one another on challenges and solutions on Joomla developing. Though CMS AFRICA SUMMIT which is now on its third year, Joomla is part of it, we just finished the Summit which was graced by Joomla President Sarah Wats on 13th and 14th March. The journey is still long, but we are here to take it, all the way to the end.
