Born 1991 in Kenya, Faith, better known as Fei-zy, is the initiator of Girls Shift Africa, the gender focus wing of YOUth Shift Africa.
Though she lost both her parents at a young age - her mother to an attack during the 2007/8 post-election violence - and has to fend for herself without family support, Faith loves giving back to the community and has involved herself in social activities like helping the elderly, working with special needs children and visiting orphans. She also goes into the slums, informally and freely interacting with women and girls, giving health talks, information on how to live a happier life, and motivating on topics such as contraceptives, neighbourhood cleanups and blood donation.
