Welcome to my blog – Jambo Nairobi! This blog documented my first experiences in East and Southern Africa, from August 2011 to September 2012. After graduating from Ohio Wesleyan University in 2011 with a B.A. in Economics and Philosophy, through an alumni connection I boarded a flight to Kenya and spent a year volunteering with Maono Initiative, an Nairobi-based microfinance institution. I fell in love with the country, caught the Africa bug, and am currently a Rating Analyst at Planet Rating, a microfinance rating agency with a regional office in Nairobi.
