My Story


Hi, welcome to my small slice of the internet where all my stuff lives. I am glad you are here.

My name is Wanjiru. I am a writer, restorer of libraries and entrepreneur from Nairobi Kenya. I’ve written for a few publications, and recently released my first book! Which is now available right here on this website! (Im ecstatic!)

I am a co-founder of Book Bunk, an organisation that exists because we refuse to live in a city without thriving libraries. I also explore ways to support arts that catalyse social change, which you can read a little more on the longer version of my bio…

I am glad you are here.
