Aurelia Kungu


International Relations & Diplomacy



My educational background is in International Relations and Diplomacy and I am passionate about empowerment causes, especially for the youth and women. I am a co-founder of SAJIRA, a nonprofit organization based in Kenya that provides free entrepreneurship training and mentorship to unemployed youth in rural Kenya. I am currently in the process of creating a podcast that creates awareness about gender issues in Kenya. The voice is a powerful tool for change and I have decided to use mine. I envision a world where there is equitable access to opportunities for everyone and, more importantly, a world where women and girls live free from violence as valued members of their communities. My favorite quote is by Mother Teresa: “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
