Through his interests, Kamau lives by the expression “get on the floor and grab crayons”. That is to say, Kamau is about getting involved when you see something you’d like to create. With this idea in mind, Kamau would like to work as an organizer, educator, and content creator aimed at creating more equitable spaces for black people.
