Accelerating Social Change

2017 | Winie Choni Barawa

Winie Choni Barawa, a Green Spice, is a woman who the word determination befits her well. Having struggled with the english language as a child till in her teenagehood with hardly being able to construct a proper sentence, her academic performance was drastically affected. She did all she could from purchasing translation books to joining the debating club just to be able to hack the English language. Today she is a master of the English language and initiated a community based organization called “Washindi” Africa, swahili for “overcome” and formulated groups in schools where she offers mentorship. So what is her favourite quote, “You were born with wings, don’t forget to flap them.”
