Nzale, who is also a fashion designer, is a humble and down to earth soul.

In a recent interview with Business Today, the multitalented personality she said she learned the sign language from a girl who had a hearing impairment in her neighborhood.

I developed the desire to learn proper sign language as a young girl. Our neighbor’s daughter in Mombasa was deaf. She had no one to play and interact with. I started spending time and playing with her since she had no friends,’ she said.

Adding,

I started learning from her and always wanted to be trained on sign language. I challenged myself to immediately study sign language after high school so that I’d also serve in church as well.
