Trends come and go whether in looks, clothing, or otherwise, but classic beauty, like anything classic never goes out of style. Many of us have two types of clothes in our closets: the of-the-moment, trendy pieces and the classics. They are equally important, but we tend to place greater value on the latter because, well, they’ll never go out of style.

Kenya: A chat with Winnie Ojanga is one with a motivational speaker, an angelic one. She walks into the venue of the interview, a hotel in Nairobi’s CBD, with elegance that is almost intimidating. But an instant reassuring smile the moment our eyes meet erases all that. Soon, we are in agreement that she and I are just regular Kenyans.
Besides English, Winnie speaks fluent Swahili and Dholuo. Once in a while, she throws in a bit of not-up-to-date sheng, but still passes her message across quite well. This is our first meeting, but it ends up looking more like a chat between old friends.
Winnie appreciates everyone. She sees beauty in everything and everyone. She effortlessly influences one to see things in her perspective. Her unspoken point is: No matter what you already know about people, there is always something good in everyone.
