    I am Irene Kizia, 23 years old female living in Africa,Kenya,Mfangano Island.I am a student at Maseno University taking my degree programme on History studies and Kiswahili. Both my parents are alive and staying at our Rural home where they help orphans and the vulnerable in the community.I love hiking ,watching and reading wide on different historical books and documentaries.I love nature and the beuty it offers.i love singing and currently learning how to play a guitar.

    As a history student,i would like to learn new cultural practices and learn various languages across the world ,hence prompting me to be a host of various workaway tourists and also teach them English and Kiswahili as our main languages in Kenya.

    The main economic activity in Mfangano Island is fishing, i would gladly welcome the workawayers to also come and enjoy our fishing techniques.

    My place has got serene environment to be admired.It has got playing grounds for good exercise.The locals are friendly and very welcoming to visitors. Mfangano Island is located at Lake VICTORIA, Africa's largest fresh water lake.And offers very affordable means of living to both the locals and visitors.
