We made it! Our first issue of ZOOM MAGAZINE is out! We had a striking launch last year at the Goethe Institute Nairobi. The whole USANII LAB crew has been collaborating on one big project: ZOOM MAGAZINE. ZOOM is a magazine for the youths of Nairobi. It is designed, written and founded by us. The project includes researching, content gathering as well as designing. For the first issue we interviewed interesting Nairobians like actor Daniel Peter Weke aka Arthur Mali from the famous TV-soap Mali, upcoming footballer Danson Kago as well as Kenya's National team pride, Francis Kahata. Shadrack Juma, a young newly elected county representative from Ruaraka talks about youth leadership, Joel Ngui aka Snajna speaks about his TV career and Jacky Vike aka Awinja talks about fashion and empowers youths to "be patient and keep pushing for whatever your heart desires to do". That's what we are doing. You got curious? Get one! ZOOM MAGAZINE is available in the streets of Nairobi and if you can't find one simply contact us! We love to send you our first issue of ZOOM. And we love to get feedback from you as well as we are in the progress of making the next edition.
