I am Martin Shonko, a medical student at The Kenya Methodist University. I joined RESPEKT in 2018 as a volunteer and currently serve as the regional coordinator (RC) of Meru. Up until now the experience has been nothing short of gratifying. The fun and excitement that ensues from interacting with teenagers from across the region is unmatched. Of even greater satisfaction is the opportunity to positively impact the lives of teens in matters concerning SRHR and their general health and social well-being. Under the banner RESPEKT, medical students from across Kenya and our partners from overseas have had a platform to meet and bond constituting this family which I am extremely proud to be a part. Given the chance, I would have it no other way!
