About me

I was born and raised in Malawi, but home is scattered in people and places and memories. I have lived in Blantyre, Lilongwe, Colorado, Massachusetts and, currently, Johannesburg. I’m a reader, a writer, a student, a sister, a daughter and friend. I’m also an alumna of Smith College, where I graduated with a degree in Women & Gender Studies and African Studies and I currently work at the African Leadership Academy as a member of their Writing and Rhetoric faculty through the Princeton In Africa Fellowship.

Conversations about Africa, storytelling, deconstructing and reconstructing faith, (social) justice, colonialism, race and the arbitrary nature of borders tickle my fancy. I fluently speak English, Chicheŵa, and can have broken but passable conversation in French.
