The Big 3 0!

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.

    Happy Birthday! (even though it’s been a month already.) I started reading your blog back in high school while you were in campus. Actually, your blog was among the first blogs I’d ever read. You made me yearn to get to campus and to some extent influenced me to pick up the pen and write about my campus experience. I’m currently in campus, finishing this year, and as I go out. I just want to thank you and wish you all the best as you embark on your third decade on planet 🌍
