My name is Evans Wamiru. I am young and optimistic Kenyan youth who has passion for Human Rights, networking and enterprenuership. I’m a student at the University of Nairobi pursuing Bachelor of Laws. I also do student activism. Having been brought up in slums, i developed passion for agitating for injustices. I would like to see light at the end of the tunnel someday. I strongly believe that i have been born, baptized and raised in the activism blood! Law is not discretional and so is justice.
