“Further studies can open women’s minds and make them realize who they are so that they can start working for their future.”

Meet Faith, an amazing and smart young woman from Mutomo who will pursue studies in IT at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology. Faith has always been a driven student and has also shown great engagement in extracurricular activities, including involvement in agricultural programs and the science club, as well as being a prefect at school.

Faith wants to challenge the male-dominated business world of IT and question the status quo. Her grandfather has been a great inspiration to her, encouraging her to enter the field of IT and engineering.

 

Faith believes education is key to attaining gender equality. She believes that if more girls are given the opportunity to an education, their confidence will be increased and they will feel encouraged to pursue a career. This will enable them to be empowered and contribute to their family and society. A lot of girls dropps out of school, for example as a result of pregnancy, and Faith believes the chance for girls to continue their education is essential. She states: “Further studies can open women’s minds and make them realize who they are so that they can start working for their future.”

Qualities such as kindness, courage and confidence are crucial in successful leadership, according to Faith. Furthermore, she believes a good leader should show commitment in her organization by being helpful and hard-working.
