Guest DJ: Mary

Mary, a coworker of Sickiey, our Shake It So representative in Malawi, was our guest DJ yesterday for Feel Good Friday! She joined us last Friday and showed us her awesome moves. Mary is a tailor and she designs menstrual pads for the K2 TASO Moon Catcher program, which is so freaking cool. We were so excited to dance with her again and hear her selection super fun AfroPop hits, and we were not disappointed!
