MEET RACHEL AKOTH

 

What do you do at Imani Collective? 

I am mainly in the quality control department but I also help out with the cutting and doing the final sewing of our products by hand.

What drew you to work for this company?

I loved the fact that it is all about making hand made products since I personally love making stuff but also what drew me to Imani Collective is that they nurture you to develop skills and care for the community. 

.

What is something you’ve done/you’re doing that makes your proud? 

I was a shy and timid person when I started working at Imani Collective 2 years ago, but now as I look back, I am so proud of the fact that now I am able to confidently express myself and communicate with everyone whether it's at work, or with family and friends.

.
What is your favorite food? 
Fried Fish (Specifically Tilapia) and Ugali
Describe your ideal day:
My ideal day would be waking up early, clean up and do house chores as I prepare for work - get to the workshop, have tea with my colleagues, spend the day working then leave work for college where I get to hang out with Friends after school then head home

One last thing to live by,

Pray hard...Work hard...Play hard
