Please read this lovely update about a former Jambo Jipya student who is now attending the University of Nairobi. To reach this milestone one needs the desire, the motivation, the intelligence and of course the resources.
Executive Director, R2S
My name is Maureen W., and I am currently a fourth-year student at the University of Nairobi pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Statistics. Since this is a double major, I am taking courses/lectures in both economics and from the statistics department.
I am finishing Term 7 which I will complete in January and then begin my last semester of coursework – Term 8. Exams will occur in June 2020 and then, God willing, I will be clearing school and have my graduation in December. Between July and December, I will have the opportunity to secure an attachment, or as you call it, an internship. I am not sure if it will be a paid opportunity at this point but this will provide the work experience I need to secure employment.
Since my exams will be in June 2020, graduation will not occur until December 2020 as one must wait for the exam results to be posted. Then I can seek employment.
I also would like to do the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certificate program which is an added advantage in the corporate world today. If there is a chance of doing masters, I wish to pursue Political Science since I thirst to venture into the business world and accomplish my desire.
I thank Reason2Smile and the Calhoun Senior Experience Class of 2017 for giving me the opportunity of reaching my goals and make the world a better place.
I hope to be in a position that I may be among those who will be supporting Reason2Smile and see it support more children from humble backgrounds just like me.
Wonderful Holiday greetings from Kenya,
