Joyce Kimani was in the 2019 cohort of students, for Cameras For Girls.“Hello, I am Joyce Wanjiru Kimanifrom Nairobi Kenya. I am 26 years old. I am forever grateful to my parents for having catered for me and ensuring that my tuition was always paid and that I can now proudly claim that I am a journalismand Mass Communication graduate from Makerere University Kampala.I am passionate about helping the needy, especially children and people in society that feel neglected, for instance, street children, orphans, children whose parents are in jail/ whom are being used by their parents to earn money instead of going to school.In order to achievethis, I am currently working towards stabilizing my self and ensuring that I have a stable source of income.The Camera for Girls training was very efficient and effective for me. Luckily, I was in Uganda and I got a hands-on experience/training with the manual cameras we were given. In case I forget I can always peruse through the hard copy notes we were given and till today, Amina has been so kind and welcoming to us.She has always answered questions that we ask in photography, made more photography session videos and has gone a step further in training me how to write professional resumes and cover Letters.”Below are some of the images that Joyce has taken through-out the training.
