    1. Hi Mina, thanks for reaching out! I’m having trouble finding the original source of the posting (it may have been sent to me with a generic title, through facebook or email, etc.), I was on a different computer on Thursday so I’ll check that browser history tomorrow. But rest assured that it is a new job as I put it online the same day I found it, from a current channel. In the meantime, here is the contact page with phone and email for Kamau’s studio:
