I am proud to have studied at DeKUT.The institution shaped me to who I am today. I first joined in 2008 for a bridging course in mathematics and later in 2009 for B.COM.Even if there were limited resources as the University was young and growing, the challenges did not hinder me from achieving my academic goals. I interacted with students from different ethnic groups, religious backgrounds and social classes and from them I gained a lot which can help me work in anywhere in Kenya. I was also a student leader and the leadership skills I gained in DeKUT earned me the responsibility of the head of department at my work place. Its one of the best universities offering very competitive courses.

The foundation of actuarial studies I got from DKUT and various leadership opportunities has contributed immensely to my career path. I have been able to get involved in research work and concepts I did not know before coming to DKUT. This helped me discover my interest in investments. DKUT degree also gave me a strong academic base to join Curtin University for Masters in Actuarial and Financial Science. My goal is to develop investments and financial planning models in the near future and manage portfolios in projects I am assigned.

I joined Dekut when it had just been elevated to a university college status. Then, challenges were immense but the committed staff that was around made things easier for us. Lecturers were so committed that sometimes we would joke that they were taking studies so seriously that one would think we were preparing for a National examination. Looking back now, I realise why they used to do this. At DeKUT,you are moulded academically,spiritually,emotionally and even physically. To the students, make the right choices and you will never regret in life. Life is all about choices.
