Peris Nazi Kalama was born and raised in kilifi. I am the fort born in a family of two boys and six girls. I attended mwarakaya primary school and completed primary e ducation. However, i did not manage to go to secondary school. Life was tough in the village so in early 2010 I relocated to mombasa where i enrolled for a course in dress making. I then managed to get employed asa a house help thats when i saved enough cash to purchase my own sawing machine and started making garments fo my friend and neighbours. The uniqueness of mombasa is the loving attitude of residents here unlike other cities in kenya, the swahili culturre is also very good and how most of women dress the vitenge and dera. Also the good sand beaches and hotels make mombasa good and unique.
I am blessed with two children who both want to become nurses. My hobbies is swimming, eating and travelling.
