Makena is recent high school graduate based in Nairobi, Kenya. A lover of music and cooking, (despite being terrible at the latter), she spends much of her time in the kitchen with the music on. Right now, she hopes to study mathematics or leadership in university, after completing a gap year Emphasis on the “right now” because last week she wanted to be a neuroscientist.
Her all-time favorite love, though, is writing, which she only started to explore late in 2021 with her blog Exasperations of a Teenage Cynic.
Makena is a proud alumnus of the church-based Rights of Passage (ROPES) class of 2016, and has chronicled her experience in this short, witty story.
