Head of Media and Communication
After working as a science and development reporter in mainstream media in East Africa’s largest media house (Nation Media Group), Verah sees Africa as a continent whose representation is always scratching on the surface: focusing on the tragedies and ignoring the path that got her there; ignoring the artistic and rare beauty that are usually overshadowed in the midst of all the heart-breaking narratives that reinforce the label “developing world”. She joined the summit to allow Africa to refuse to be put in a box. Verah holds an undergraduate degree in media and communication with IT, with a minor in Creative and Performing Arts from Kenya’s Maseno University. She has been awarded seven times for reporting on gender, health, science and the environment.
