Get to Know Us:

Brian is a Computer Security and Forensics student from Busia, Kenya. He has been involved with Enactus for three years and serves as the team’s IT Specialist and Presenter. Brian says the biggest challenge of his Enactus experience has been the collision between classwork, clubs and activities. He came up with a schedule to manage his time and activities.

More about Brian:

  • What I’m reading:  “The Spark” by Dooso Radido
  • Theme song:  “A Mother’s Love” by Gena Hill
  • Who inspires me:  My dear mommy, Mediatrix. She has never given up and always stood with me no matter what! I must make her the proudest women ever.
  • Enactus in one word: Transforming
  • Best Enactus moment: Participating in Enactus World Cup 2018.
  • In five years, I will be… “…a world-class humanity defendant activist and a motivational speaker who will always voice the voice of the voiceless and foster for human rights.”
