The event, led by the alumni and facilitated by Future First Kenya, was the first of the kind at the school. Students heard from and spoke at length with 21 alumni, including a civil engineer, a banker, a photographer and a Human Resources Manager.
95% of the girls who attended said it made them want to work harder and helped them to believe in their future success. 96% of students said that hearing from former students about careers was much better than other sources of advice available to them, “it’s much better to hear from former students because they’ve gone through what I go through in school today,” one student explained. “And they’ve come out successful so it motivates me.”
