Anna M Mwalagho:
CEO & Head

Award-winning singer, songwriter, actress, comedian, and poet, Anna Mwalagho is a truly remarkable renaissance woman. Anna was born in Nairobi, Kenya where she gained her love for the arts. She moved to the USA in 2000 and discovered that there were a lot of misconceptions as well as interest in African Culture.

Her mother-tongue or native language is what has stood her apart in all her endeavors. As a Swahili instructor and teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience in the USA, her classes are exciting, engaging, informative, and interactive.

As the CEO, her vision is to educate, train, and expand the knowledge of Swahili culture, create job opportunities for Swahili instructors, and create accessibility for learning the language.
