Kawiria Rincuni (Kawi) is lady with a bright and bubbly personality, who’s passionate about new technology and innovations that make life easier. She enjoys creating social content that positively inspires and impacts people, and most of all, interacting with people in a way that will create more value in their lives.
She has a Master’s in Business Administration, with a major in Strategic Management and Marketing from Daystar University and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Information Technology from Strathmore University.
Kawi Snippets is an avenue she uses to share her experiences and views as she exhibit the things that make her who she is. She draws her inspiration from knowing that there’s a divine connection created with people through sharing of content, and that’s why she’s consistently done it over the years (since 2009).
Naazneen Parkar (Naaz) is lady with a cool, calm and collected personality. She’s passionate about tourism and more importantly reinforcing the link between online marketing and tourism.
She has a Bachelor of Commerce from Rhodes University and a Post Graduate Diploma in Tourism from University of Cape Town. She’s a digital strategist from Kenya with experience across the web with a key focus on Kenya, South Africa and Canada.
Her goal is to make this world a better place, one gesture and one step at at time, because each of them counts. She draws her inspiration from being able to create the dots (innovate) and more so connect them (implement) and uses that as her personal benchmark for success. Her focus will be on sharing her perspective on leadership and general life lessons, because she believes that together we can make a difference.

Mbithe Nzomo is a lady who is mediocrity-averse, with a bold and ambitious personality to boot. She’s passionate about travelling and her favorite destinations so far have been Osaka, Paris, and Watamu. She hopes to visit at least 2 new cities by the end of the year, possibly Cape Town and New York. She’s also extremely passionate about tech, and about getting more girls and women interested in programming and careers in tech.
She has a Bachelor of Science in Informatics from Strathmore University and currently works as a software developer at Andela. She says,
I absolutely love what I do and where I work. I believe that the future of Africa lies in technology, and I’m enthusiastic about sharing knowledge in the technology space.
In her career so far, she has spoken at several technology conferences, forums, and meet-ups. She’s also a contributing author at Scotch.io, where she writes programming tutorials. She’s active in organizing and mentoring at programming workshops for girls, most recently Django Girls Nairobi 2016 and Django Girls Mombasa 2017. You can find out more on her tech blog, deCODEgirl. She’s inspired by many things and most of them revolve around women in technology (Hidden Figures, for example, was amazing).
She aims to live an ultimately happy and balanced life; as she continues to work through the different facets of her life. On Kawi Snippets, she’ll focus mostly on lifestyle. To begin with, she’d like to have a series on moving out in Nairobi for young people who are leaving home for the first time, and probably don’t have a huge budget or a clue about how to navigate this journey.
