Njuhi has led countrywide social impact campaigns including production of a radio show which helped improve the sexual reproductive health outcomes of vulnerable adolescent girls in Western Kenya and an online series that cultivated the potential political leadership of women and girls in Kenya. Her superpower is listening and working with people in strengthening opportunities for the transformation of their communities.
