My name is Janet Wambui Kabue, born and raised in Thika, Kenya. When a child is born in the Kikuyu community (my community) they are named according to the husband’s family line, that is given priority. So, I being the 5th born in my family, my sisters and brothers had already been named after both set of my parents parents, I was named after my dad’s sister, Aunt Janet. That’s the first two names, the third name is my Dad’s name.
The biggest treasure I have in my life, is being brought up in a village. There I experienced life in full, from growing up around my all my relatives to walking miles to the primary school and being able to be around nature.
