My name is Husna and I’m a freelance graphic designer and photographer turned content creator for Life in Mombasa. I love all things Swahili related including history, culture, food, you name it! I love cats, reading, watching indie and foreign movies, indie and African (both home and diasporan African music including hip-hop), visiting cute cafes and spending time with my family and friends.
Upon living in the west for a majority of my life, I was constantly pulled to Mombasa going to vacation in my hometown almost every summer for the past 5 years. I became increasingly interested in Swahili culture and history and fell in love with the lifestyle of the coast of Kenya. I decided to move back and vowed to help keep our rich Swahili culture and heritage strong in whatever way I can.
