When I got raped and when I was diagnosed with epilepsy first then bipolar years later, I desperately needed to hear that I was not alone, that someone somewhere knew how I felt, I desperately yearned to have a point of reference and a constant reminder that i will be alright...but I never got any; so I  decided to be one for myself and for many others across the globe through my blog, social media pages and speaking engagements. 

 
My name is Sitawa Wafula; a blogger and mental health advocate who runs My Mind, My Funk; a mental health info and support hub that ran Kenya's first mental health and epilepsy support line; serving over 11,000 Kenyans in the first year.

 
Over the past year - 2016, I have had the opportunity to have a month long USA speaking tour that included Aspen Ideas Festival which hosted the likes of Caitlyn Jenner as well as gracing stages like TED and MOTH. 

This has given me a front row feel of the power of storytelling. As I celebrate 14 years of strength, as a rape survivor,  I decided to use this tool in engaging the youth in Kenya by sharing my life experience; touching the rape ordeal, living with epilepsy and bipolar, dropping out of Actuarial  school and getting fired from a job when I had a seizure in the work place, moving from stigma and exclusion tcreating a Google award winning blog, running Kenya's first free mental health and epilepsy support line.
