Alexi Sharkey (Undergo Society of Kenya - USK): Alexi graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2007 with degrees in Political Science and French. She then spent a year in Yenta, Shandong Province, China, teaching Global Issues and English language courses. Alixa has also undertaken projects with immigrant youths in Lexington, Kentucky and interned for the Conceal General du Calvados in France. At the time of her fellowship Alexi was a graduate student at the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies at the University of California, San Diego with a focus in International Politics. After her fellowship, Alexi wrote: “One day I was really grumpy during one of the training sessions, when one of the students came in and you could just tell he was so happy. So I asked him, 'Elias, you seem really happy, why are you so happy?' And he replied, 'because I am here and I am learning to bog.' And then I couldn't help but be happy as well...For now all I will say, with confidence, is that I am a much more patient person.”



Koch FM

15 Aug

The Digital Storytelling Project is forming partnerships with community radio stations around Nairobi. Our hope is that through community radio the DSP participants will be better able to share their stories with their community and start a dialogue about the issues that most affect their lives.

Last week I went with a few of our students to visit Koch FM. Koch FM is based in the slums of Korogocho. It was established in 2006 and is currently working to deliver a message of peace and reconciliation to the youth in the area. Hopefully soon our students will be contributing to their programs!
