My name is Barasa Abraham Okumba. I hold a bachelors degree in Education, Linguistics and Literature from the University of Nairobi. I am completing a Master of Arts degree in International Studies from the same institution.

I am a competent person who is quite adaptive, keen to detail, good listener, committed, honest, quick to learn and team player among others. I am a good communicator with good mastery of English and Swahili languages as well as their written forms. I have developed great translation skills from my work experience as a translator, team leader and editorial assistant at Translators Without Borders-Kenya.

I have undertaken translation related courses with Translators Without Borders-Kenya that have immensely improved my skills.
