Hi , My name is Denise . I am a civil engineering student( most people have a certain look when I say that). I am lucky to have been able to choose the path I wanted , making the choice is easy but going through the hurdles to reach where you want requires a lot of work and sacrifice.If you asked me five years ago if I thought I would have come this far my answer would probably be no; moving from Nairobi to Eldoret , learning how to live alone ,pay bills etc………….Fast forward to five years later I have survived four years of engineering ( it is not easy) and don’t let anyone lie to you. I am excited to see how my final year is going to be( what struggles it will bring).
Books have been the centre of this journey but I am slowly learning to incorporate other things into my life.Learning how to balance career, social and finance is not easy ( basically adulting). The journey of self discovery never ends and sometimes I wonder why I didn’t find out about a certain thing sooner.
This will be a space where I share what I have learnt , what I am learning and the journey to becoming a woman in the construction industry. I am a naturalista so yes all things hair will be included in the future. Let us see how fifth year takes me and I hope you can learn a thing or two, be inspired or encouraged. I hope you will be part of this journey.
