Cecily's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay her tuition fees at Strathmore University.

Cecily's story

My name is Cecily. I would like to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at Strathmore University because it offers the best in the course; and if I want to be the best, I have to be where the best is.

In high school, my favorite subjects were Mathematics and Physics. My elder brother did Computer Science. That is why I got very interested in computers. This is when I realized that I was very interested in computers and aimed at doing Computer Science as my undergraduate course. He is my motivation. He once told me, "Why reach for the sky when people have been to the moon?" He always told me to aim for the best.

After high school, I decided that I had to expand my knowledge of computers. I got interested in programming, which resulted into me teaching myself some programming languages including Python, HTML, and Javascript. I would like to use my knowledge to help solve cyber crimes by unethical hackers.

Thank you, Kiva, for enabling determined students to achieve what they have always dreamed of.
