Get To Know Me

JOSEPHINE KARIANJAHI is a celebrated connector, experienced international development consultant, social changemaker-in-residence and creative from Nairobi based in Dusseldorf.

Her conscientiousness, social awareness, and maturity immediately struck me as exceptional. While serving as an informal mentor to Josephine, she demonstrated a personal awareness regarding her own abilities, goals, and constraints that are rare even for people much her senior. Personally, she is intelligent, engaging, dynamic, and easy to work with. Any organization would be lucky to have her!’
