As breath blew into his heart, love and compassion filled his soul and so did light, a baby with a sparkle in his eye
was born and bred in the beautiful country of Kenya.
As time went by he grew up into a gentleman who was different, empowered, and strong. His drive for success and the finer things in life drove him into a passionate career that brought him peace, clairvoyance, and self-understanding for all that he wanted to achieve in life.
Feisal Ahmed Munyua is an unorthodox individual who has moved from being a culinary expert in the finest
establishments in Nairobi, to being unflatteringly closeted, to being androgynous as he believes androgyny
is the future, from being a magazine food and restaurant critic to a food writer in the East African newspaper.
Since then he has grown into doing different things that bring him joy; such as social media management, content
creation, food reviews, photography and videography, and styling. His sense of style is nothing out of the
ordinary but with time it has evolved.
As the former Director of Recruitment and Marketing, I strategized— together with the team— ways to showcase the content we are trying to bring onto the QAN platform. I have since moved on from this role, but I will leave you with my most profound advice— Newton's laws of motion:
- The first law defines the force qualitatively. (Living a life full of quality that enriches your soul beyond the scope of what seems to be a reality).
- The second law offers a quantitative measure of the force. (The experiences that make you feel most alive, that cause vibrations to your soul positively should be a higher quantity).
- The third asserts that a single isolated force doesn't exist. (Because you are the force that gives you the power to evoke all the change or none of it at all).
- Decide that what you're insecure about isn't going to hold you back. Because you are you, and you are beautiful both inside and out.
