Student Profiles – Sylvia

Sylvia | University of Nairobi
“In December 2019, news went round about a contagious disease, the novel Coronavirus. It never crossed my mind that a few months later, the whole world would be different.
Looking back, I wish I had an idea about the permanent scars that it would leave behind. I would appreciate the moments I shared with friends and family and the freedom of walking maskless. The closure of schools came with a fair share of challenges. Living in the rich agricultural land of Nyandarua County in Raitha Village at the foot of the Aberdares Ranges provides me with a serene, peaceful, and tranquil environment to study. However, due to poor connectivity, participating in online learning is almost impossible for me.
Despite these challenges, I will not let anything hinder me from achieving my goals. COVID-19 has made me discover my strengths, abilities, and weaknesses. I feel more motivated to achieve my goals.”
