Member of the month – Margaret Mwangi, July 2012

From Citizen, I moved on to Family Media where I worked for sometime  as a news reporter for Radio and for a weekly feature program called “Ear on the ground”  that featured Kenyans who had fought all odds to succeed in life from humble beginnings. From Family Media I became a freelancer for sometime before I got an opportunity to participate in a one-year AMWIK exchange program to Uganda in 2011.

I was attached at Uganda Media Women’s Association (UMWA), at a place called Kisaasi.This opportunity gave me that international exposure of working out of the country.

I joined AMWIK in early 2004 while working at Royal Media as a reporter for both Citizen Television and Radio.  It was towards the end of the same year that I helped fundraise for a walk that they had organized. As new member, I started off at a very high momentum and since then I have been actively involved in nearly all the AMWIK activities as a passionate member.

I have not looked back eight years down the line and I’m willing to mentor new members joining AMWIK.

I’m grateful to AMWIK for the experiences that I have gained in all areas of my professional work. I have been writing for AMWIK publications like the “DAWN” and  “INUKA” on gender related issues.

Apart from writing for AMWIK publications, I am actively involved in the fundraising committee and have been actively involved in fundraising and organizing for the AMWIK Scholarship Dinner.

I am grateful to GOD for using  AMWIK as a  stepping stone to how far I have come.The sky is not the limit and am still pursuing my goals and trusting GOD to realise all of them in His timing.
