Paula Odhiambo

I'm Kenyan born and bred, but I consider myself an East African. I am passionate about Jesus Christ. Coming to the United States in 2005 made me more aware of my gender and heritage than ever before, and I have realized in the process that I have a love for the women of Africa and the youth in general. I have found writing to be one of the most fulfilling ways to express my values and to create awareness on causes that are important to me.
