#WCW: Adelle Onyango @ADELLEO

Posted on

My #WCW for today is none other than @ADELLEO!!

I’m sure anyone who listens to KISS 100 knows who I am talking about. Adelle Onyango has become one of Kenyan Radio’s biggest personalities of this year. Not too long ago she was doing the mid-morning show until mid this year when she took over from Kalekye Mumo. Despite the rumours about how Kalekye left and she took over, Adelle has been doing a banging job holding fort and besting Shaffie at his game! #TeamADELLE has grown strong and it even gave rise to #TeamShaffie.

One of her widely known projects is Project SHE. At the beginning of 2015, Adelle Onyango begun collecting stories of conquest from women across the world. They would share a challenge they faced in their life that they eventually overcame. ProjectSHE partnered with the Technical Engineering College of Pretoria, South Africa and the students of the college, sent in their stories. The male participants would share a female icon that they draw inspiration from. On the 1st of April 2015, Adelle Onyango begun sharing a story per day. (Source)

Oh and she ain’t one to take bullying lying down!

Namaste!

Meet Kingston Farady. He is a transman. He describes himself as an “Alchemist: Transforming my own margins into vast territories where inclusion reigns. Shining light on my gender variant kin of color. Living the Tribe Life.

His story will give you goosebumps! I know I got some :D!
