Prof. Gicheru shared her journey, highlighting the challenges she faced along the way and the lessons she learned from those turbulent experiences. “I want to emphasise the significance of resilience and perseverance in the face of setbacks, and as youths, you must remain focused on your goals and never despair in pursuing your dreams.” She applauded the bold steps and initiatives by the County government. Moreover, the CUK’s DVC encouraged the youths to take advantage and seize the many opportunities available to them, including internships, mentorship programs, and networking events. The Professor’s speech was a particular highlight, offering inspiring and practical advice on how to master the future and achieve the highest potential success in any career.
