Daisy Wanzala Sumba is the founder of DW Communications, a PR, Marketing and Communications company that authentically defines and nurtures brands on the digital space. Her main driver of success is her hunger to constantly outdo her previous achievements and how she gets up after failing.
She has been raised in both Busia and Nairobi by her parents and grandmother. She had to toughen up at a tender age as she lost her immediate family to HIV/AIDS. This is when her grandmother took her under her wing. However, this didn’t kill Daisy’s zeal for success. While still a child, she always took up responsibility and leadership roles which enabled her to have the zeal to own her own business.
To Daisy, GRIT means constantly pushing one’s self in order to achieve the best version of themselves. This, for her, is the GRIT Edition because it’s bigger, tougher and more inspirational.
“BLAZE BYOB will change my life by giving me a platform to network and be mentored by those that went ahead of me in running a successful and sustainable business.” Daisy Wanzala
If she wins, she’ll use the funding to develop her PR firm through expanding her business reach. She also intends to share the knowledge she’s acquired from the show with upcoming entrepreneurs. This, accompanied by growing her network and business acumen is one of her major take outs from the show.
