Yes, I am thirty today. Where did my 20s go? One moment I am joining JKUAT (See blog) as a fresher at 19; I blink and I’m 30 and halfway across the world.
I have spent most of my 20s in school. Undergraduate at JKUAT, Master’s at Strathmore University, and a PhD at JAIST. Finally in my final year and I hope to graduate in September. I have to submit my thesis in two weeks so this post will be brief. I have ignored this blog long enough because well, thesis.
I guess apart from schooling, one thing that had a profound effect in my 20s was becoming a mother. It’s a continuous journey because he is growing, and I am just hoping I can keep up. So far so good. I am lucky I had the support of my parents for the first couple of years and I have found a support network of friends and Japanese “parents”.
I also had the pleasure (mostly) of working at EY for about 2 years before quitting to pursue my PhD.
I have traveled quite a bit.. from Rwanda, Uganda, to Canada and New Zealand. I hope to see more of other African countries in my 30s.
I am really looking forward to what life has in store for my 30s. I have a feeling that there is so much more to see, to feel, to experience, to do.
