Shiko Kariuki is a Kenyan born African-Australian who is passionate about the health and well-being of the general population, which led her to pursue a career as a Registered Nurse. She currently works at a mental health Clinic.
Shiko is a SOFA SUNDAY alumni, a leadership program for women that’s under the sponsorship of the U.S. Consulate in Perth. Shiko also attends a monthly Speakers Gathering, a program that has equipped her with public speaking skills and stage etiquette.
Shiko is your Ms. Galaxy Australia 2019 and is using this platform to continue her journey of women empowerment by mentoring youth and young women. Shiko is looking forward to meeting other like-minded women who use this wonderful platform as a force of good in their community. In the words of Meghan Markle, “Women do not need to find a voice, they already have it. Instead, women need to feel empowered to use their voice”.
Shiko is also mobilising funds actively for different causes in Perth as well as attending events that create positive change in the community.
Congratulations to Shiko for placing 3rd Runner Up at the 2019 Galaxy International Pageant®!
