I am a board member for a Non-Profit that does advocacy, fundraising, and community development in Kenya. With my master's program, I hope to support and volunteer in more Non-Profits that do grassroots work in child and women development.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. I think it also takes a village to support someone in an ambitious educational endeavor as a Master's.
I want to give special thanks to my husband and children, who stood by me throughout this journey. I also want to thank Kogo'p Chepkosgei, who helped me babysit my newborn baby when I embarked on this educational journey. I also extend hearty thanks to my family in Kenya and, in particular, my mother- Christine Targok Chesiyna, and my father- the Late Elisha Chebii Chesiyna, who instilled the importance of tertiary studies and academic growth.
