Kristen Maryn

Kristen Maryn (Hakijamii the Economics and Social Rights Centre): Kristen received her BS in Business Administration and BA in Sociology from the University of Arizona in 2007. Upon graduating, she traveled to Nigeria to work with a micro-finance program. After returning from Nigeria, Kristen worked in corporate management. At the time of her fellowship, Kristen was pursuing her JD at Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, with a focus on migration, conflict amelioration, and alternative dispute resolution. After her fellowship Kristen wrote: “This fellowship reiterated my goal of getting to a place where I do not need to sit back and wait for someone to help me in order to get things done. I really enjoyed being part of a network that was small enough that it felt like a family, but had a global reach.”



Tutaonana badaye, Kenya

06 Sep

I have been enamored with African culture for a while, and Kenya just added to it.  I found the country and the people to be beautiful and vibrant (albeit challenging at times).  So here are a couple videos of two of my favorite things: music and animals.

I know they are both a bit long; I had such a hard time paring down!  But definitely stick with it through the end of the music video to see the gorgeous Maasai women and my personal favorite, island-style Jambo, Bwana.

A fond kwaheri to Kenya, as I am now back in DC for my second year of law school.  Asante sana, Kenya.  Tutaonana badaye.
