Resource Development Organizer
A migrant and third-culture kid originally from Nigeria, Kereknaan/KK’s (she/her) global perspective was formed early in her life and has shaped her approach to social justice to this day. Shortly after her time studying Sociology and International Development in college, KK returned to Nigeria for a year during which she did a service year at the National Commission for UNESCO in Abuja. She has spent the past few years operationalizing fundraising systems and building donor relationships at a nonprofit that supports Rwanda’s first and only college for women. KK’s political education has deepened over the years as she continues to see the desperate need for decolonization and overall systemic solutions to structural violence. She looks forward to building more relationships, moving people to action, and growing politically with the GGJ community. When KK’s not working, she’s often curating music, listening to an audiobook/podcast (she particularly enjoys podcasts that debunk health and wellness myths), designing clothes, or finding and cooking new recipes.
