The programme at Karatina University, shaped him to be a transformational leader. He served as the Chair of Karatina University Student Association and he got this to say about his academic journey. “I remember my final year presentation for my class work project. I felt nervous then, but finally I did it and that one was my best moment. When I went to present I felt afraid, and then when I presented I felt so good for the effort I applied on. Now I feel so much better than my final year presentation because I now know that I can do whatever I want to do. The learnings that I acquired made it so good because I know that I have to trust on me. From my experience have learnt that we have to overcome our fears and not let them control ourselves because we can’t know our capabilities if we are afraid. The Leader in me was made while in Karatina University”.
