Mambo? Supa? Yomunee? Unjani? Hello?
The names I choose to go by are Chebet Naserian. Out of my four names, Shanice Chebet Naserian Kuntai, they best represent my physical identity as an Afrikan womxn and spiritual identity as an agent of light and goodness.
Afrikanist Feminist Christian
As an Afrikan Womxn these are my core identities and they flow into the careers I am building. As an Afrikanist, I am committed to the movement to end racism and its manifestations especially on the Afrikan continent. As a feminist, I am devoted to the movement to end sexism, heterosexism, cissexism, sexist exploitation and oppression. As a Christian, I believe in the ultimate end of human suffering through actions produced by faith in God and the hope of eternal life. I am still learning and growing these identities and plan to share the journey under my identity work blog category.
This blog in addition to my Youtube channel, Instagram platform and Chai with Chebet Newsletter is me finally embracing my calling as a content creator. I will share stories, lessons and reflections from intentionally working on myself aka Temple Work and Relationships as an Afrikan Womxn. I share these to channel my creativity and commune with those who may be on similar journeys.
Here’s a blogpost on how I started taking this seriously.
Also known as a Quantity Surveyor(QS) but my parents insist on engineer so…plus CE is more self-explanatory than QS, ama? Anyway, I recently graduated from Wits University in Johannesburg where I spent 4 years attaining a BSc in Construction Studies & a BSc Hons in Quantity Surveying. I am still figuring out what to do with it. I am hoping I can find a way to merge my built environment qualification with my passion for social justice issues as an Afrikan feminist and gift for writing and creating as a content creator. Meanwhile, I am open to opportunities that may lead me to this realisation.
Here’s a blogpost about how I ended up pursuing construction economics and management.
I am still evolving but I hope you now know me a bit better. I am all about vulnerability and authenticity so feel free to share who you are with me as well.
Welcome to my vulnerability! Karibu Sana!
