My name is Fridah Valenciah Muthoni. I did my Bachelor of Science degree in Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering at the Taita Taveta University. I graduated in 2018 and in 2019 got a scholarship from the Mujeres por Africa Foundation to pursue MSc in Environment in Spain. I am hoping to get a scholarship to do Master’s in engineering by the time I complete this 1-year course. My experience in Taita Taveta University gave me confidence to address certain challenges and an opportunity to immerse in and live with different cultures as I strive to be successful in my career as a 21st Century engineer.
