The Coady Institute: Leadership in Development 2017

Who I Am

I am a spirited, well-educated, spiritual, artistic woman, mother, wife and development change maker leader. I come from Kenya, where I work as a community developer on child rights and child protection in the capacity of the Regional Coordinator-Coast for the Kenya Alliance for Advancement of Children.

Currently I am a student at the Coady Institute at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia

Canada, studying a diploma course on Leadership in Development. In this blog, I am going to discuss my learning, how I feel about what I am learning, and how this applies to me, my work and my community back home.

Methods of Reflection

I will reflect on my learning using the 3-H's approach:

H = Head (Knowledge)

H = Heart (Feelings)

H = Hands (Actions)

I will also be using visuals (pictures, drawings and images), as well as videos and clips, to express my points of discussion.
