What you need to know:

  • My younger self thought there was a single ‘right’ career path or set of choices leading to the perfect life. The truth is you make decisions daily with the information and resources you have at hand.
  • You can only commit to approach your work and relationships with abundance, excellence and integrity, and when you find yourself in difficulties, often through no fault of your own, you work your way out. Hopefully, you emerge wiser, stronger and with some dignity intact. 

Laila Macharia serves on the boards of Centum Investment Ltd. the Africa Digital Media Group and Barclays Kenya, and holds a JSD (Doctorate in law) from Stanford Law School. At heart though, she is an artist and an engineer, constantly looking for something beautiful to create.
