Sitawa is a Feather Awards Kenya nominee, 2010, an Actuarial Science drop-out and poetess who writes, performs and hosts poetry forums and workshops in Nairobi. She started writing in 2003 after a rape ordeal and began open mic performances in Nov 2008 when she was fired from her last job after getting a seizure attack and falling on a client. Being a rape-survivor, most of her pieces centre round the girl-child and socio-political issues and is involved in advocacy work, leading a sanitary-towel campaign in partnership with Sanibank Consortium for girls from disadvantaged backgrounds. She is also an Ambassador for Mental Health in Kenya under BasicNeeds UK in Kenya given her own illness. She also blogs for Southern Sudan's widows and orphans charity, Hope Ofiriha and loves eating and reading during her free time.
