She recently spoke on how her doctor exposed her to authorship.
“When in hospital, my doctor used to encouraged me to keep short journals. Even after leaving the hospital, my writing talent never left me. Something just told me that I should just continue writing.”
Wambui has so far authored three books: Natalie’s Poems, Kenya My Country, My Story, and recently Extraordinary Kenyans doing Extraordinary Things and currently working on the fourth one.
Wambui, who hopes to grow into a reputable author said her writings are meant to give hope to many who are facing challenges in the pursuit of their dreams.
