Young Kenyan in UK Championing for Mental Health in Africa
The Face of Kenya Ambassador 2019, Ms Tallulah Mbangweta knows no limits in championing for Mental Health especially for families of African descent.
Earlier this month, she joined a round table briefing in Parliament(in UK) to discuss mental health in Africa with APPG (All Party Parliamentary Group) for Africa.
The Law Student in University of Reading was crowned Face of Kenya UK last year, thanks to her passion in solving societal problems, her focus being on Mental Health that she believes greatly affects her generation.
Her work experience has also prepared her to lead and work with fellow youth as she was responsible for creating ideas of social gatherings for the vacations scheme students to help them to bond with the company at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP.
Ms Mbangweta has worked with young ladies to interactively raise money for the charity ‘Hopes and Homes’ and educated them on the work the charity does for orphanages around the world.
This won her an Award for the Young Leaders’ Conference in 2017 by the Girls’ Day School Trust.
Her FOK Ambassadorial status has seen her share the stage with Lord Tariq Ahmed of Wimbledon, as well as High Commissioners from other countries as she delivered a speech at The Commonwealth Fair in London. Her topic was on the importance of Education and finding your voice to find your passion.
The British Sign Language student was a guest speaker at the Kenyan Diaspora Homecoming Convention 2019 in Kenya where she advocated for youth being involved in decision making process.
In December 2019, she raised money for a medical camp in Kenya and her charitable efforts cannot go unnoticed.
Tallulah Mbangweta is a young Kenyan in diaspora making great efforts to improve the lives of her fellow Africans and she is definitely a great inspiration to many young people.
