I love my name, Waringa. As my father's first daughter, I'm named after his mother. This was the name I was called the first 12 years of my life, started using my baptism name in high school. Waringa is derived from karinga, a traditional Kikuyu metal cup for measuring and serving drinks. It's been on my mind for years to revert to this name. Kampala was perfect for this; new job, new city, new beginning. Now I'm officially known as Waringa and it feels I'm finally coming home to myself.
