Kalson's Kona

About Me

Hey, how you doing?

I'm Kalson.

My name means trust in Somali.

I'm a communications strategist and social media jedi, who loves to write and this is where I sharpen my skills.

The purpose of this site is to give you a glimpse into African daily life, from my perspective as a single woman, diaspora returnee; living and working in Nairobi, one of Africa's most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.

Every week I will endeavour to write a new piece, which I hope will inspire you, make you laugh and help you reflect on your own experiences.

I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to share your feedback in the comment section of the posts.

Welcome! Karibu! Soo Dhawoow!
