Salome Mwangi is a speaker who inspires, challenges, and equips others to overcome their real or perceived obstacles, live up to their full potential, work with diverse teams and grow, professionally and personally. She relocated to Boise, Idaho in 2004 via the Refugee Resettlement Program and managed to pivot her professional skills from banking, finance and IT to providing language services for the Limited English Proficient community and their providers, in essence developing into a cultural broker. Salome, who was born and raised in Kenya, relocated to the United States via the refugee resettlement program and has called Boise, Idaho home for the past 16 years. She enjoys collaborating with community members, using storytelling to build bridges through shared human experiences, like cooking and eating together.
