Trendsetters! Meet the women who broke the norm and became the first in their careers

Kenya is a beautiful country with beautiful women. Gone are the days where women were considered to only stay at home and do house work. It is now that we see women empowering their fellow women to move up the ladder and do what men are doing and actually do it better.

Below are some of the Kenyan women who became first in their career,

1. Elizabeth Marami

 She is Kenya’s first woman marine pilot after successfully completing five years of intensive training at the prestigious marine training college in Alexandria, Egypt.
