Stella is passionate about the environment. She loves the outdoors and has climbed Mt. Longonot and Mt. Kenya two times. The discipline of systems; running to prepare one’s body, exercising and keeping to the track, are a translation of the same in her work life.

She loves reading, especially motivational books and in her spare time she visits children’s homes for the orphaned.
