Brenda Gikunda - People who come from nothing can come here to build and start a new life.

Recent high school graduate Brenda Gikunda came to Tallahassee from Kenya when she was six years old. Though she found it challenging navigating her native culture as a child, she credits her mom for keeping Swahili in her life. Beginning in her Junior year, she used her language skills to interpret for other refugees at Rickards High School. She is currently an intern at WFSU as a part of the Tallahassee Future Leaders Academy program.
