Student in the spotlight: Levis Maina Nderitu

'I was shocked at this prejudice'- Student in the Spotlights shares his story of being bullied

Our Student in the Spotlight 2018 Levis Maina Nderitu shared his emotional story during the opening of the Academic Year. "One thing they never prepared me for was the reality of being different in an indifferent world. They never prepared me for the bullying, the name-calling and the rejection. I remember a few years ago, while interviewing for a trainee position at a large manufacturing company, one of of the managers said to me: with your high voice I don't think you will be able to work here.

Levis Maina Nderitu studies at International Institute of Social Studies (ISS) and is the founder of the Sullivan Reed Society, that aims to promote the rights of the LGBT+ community.
